Xen only has a single CPU because it can't find the ACPI tables, and the
MP table lists no secondary processors.  By default, dom0 has the same
number of vcpus as Xen has pcpus.

Can you post all of xm dmesg rather than just a snippet?

Is this a legacy boot or an EFI boot?

Are you able to try a more up-to-date version of Xen?  4.1 is quite old now.
