I think this depends on having the right DomU running as I have used xl 
list with the above settings without problems (though I don't think 
anything I run depends on xenbus).

I also wonder what your selinux settings are. I had problems with 
xen-4.7.0 which uses /dev/xen/privcmd which had 
system_u:object_r:device_t:s0 permissions rather than 
system_u:object_r:xen_device_t:s0 (now fixed if you have a recent enough 
selinux). If you have selinux enabled could you try
chcon -t xen_device_t /dev/xen/xenbus
to see if that makes any difference or alternatively setenforce 0.
