If compiling a kernel with options XENHVM the build will fail unless you also have options SMP.

I don't know this dependency is a problem per se but it should be documented, e.g in xen(4) or in comments in GENERIC or if it is documented then documented in bigger letters :-)
cd /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf
<edit blah to comment out options SMP>
cd /usr/src
make build kernel KERNCONF=BLAH
