I think you need to enable CONFIG_XEN_COMPAT_XENFS to get the mount
point. Quoting that option's help text:
         The old xenstore userspace tools expect to find "xenbus"
         under /proc/xen, but "xenbus" is now found at the root of the
         xenfs filesystem.  Selecting this causes the kernel to create
         the compatibility mount point /proc/xen if it is running on
         a xen platform.
         If in doubt, say yes.

If that doesn't help then please post a complete boot log and
your .config.
