Could you clarify note 20031022 in /usr/src/UPDATING? It states that HTT
CPUs are used for interrupts if they are detected, even if they aren't
used by regular processes. Was this something that just showed up in
pre-6.x releases?

Another question that's wondering me is why FreeBSD with the SMP kernel
the gnome system monitor (Applications->System Tools->System Monitor) only
shows one CPU when Linux with a SMP kernel shows two CPUs
