Based on your dmesg, I don't believe you have a dual-cored CPU.  It
looks as if it's hyperthreaded, which is different.

Hyperthreading is disabled in FreeBSD by default because of possible
security issues.  It can be enabled by setting a sysctl ... I recommend
you do a bit of reading on the sysctl mechanism or it's behaviour might
confuse you.
