The xdvipdfmx.cfg changed the parameters for ghostscript, which makes it 
to use xelatex in the usual way as in TL 2020. You can run

xelatex -output-driver="xdvipdfmx -i dvipdfmx-unsafe.cfg -q -E"  <file>.tex

which is not a nice solution.
However, the new file dvipdfmx-unsafe.cfg which is in 
has only one important line:

If you are tired of using the above xelatex call then replace the
line the main config file dvipdfmx.cfg, which is in the same directory,
with the above one.
