What are the contents of /proc/cpuinfo on this machine?

So is this due to hyperthreading?  If so, sorry & thanks....

Comment 4 Christopher Barton 2002-03-24 00:19:13 UTC
OK, I found it in isys/smp.c.  Definitely due to hyperthreading.

I supposed others like me who lack a clue might appreciate having that in
