[Fedora-xen] HVM Loader Doesn't See the "vcpus" Parameter?

Every time "hvmloader" comes up to load a VM, it shows  cpu=1 as
detected, no matter what number you give in .hvm configuration file. I
have vcpus=2 and cpus = "2-4" in my .hvm file!
 
Any idea why is this?  Or Am I missing anything?
 
I am guessing due to this I am not able to run the un-modified
"Multiprocessor" Windows.
 
Any help would be appreciated.
 
Thanks R
 
 
These are the details of my configuration
 
I am having a server with 2 dual core XEON with VT-x enabled on it.
