How about following changes?

config VIOMMU
          Virtual IOMMU provides interrupt remapping function for guest and it
allows guest to boot up more than 255 vcpus which requires
interrupt remapping function.

          You also have to enable it on the Xen commandline by using viommu=1

          If unsure, say Y.

config X86
        def_bool y
        select ACPI
        select HAS_PCI
        select HAS_PDX
        select NUMA
        select VGA
+       select VIOMMU
