Pensacola's kernel already has files to support Hyper-Threading features in
Intel processors. But the boot command line in lilo.conf or grub.conf need to
have acpismp=force to enable this in default.

2.1 Gold Master
Install the OS on one the following platforms:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OS login as root

3. Open cpustate(?) or simple type xcpuinfo
see n-number of CPU in N-way system
see 2n logical CPUs on N-way system
Are you using pre-production BIOS revisions? We have tested this
successfully on multiple HT machines in our lab.
