Yep, neat chip :)

POWER4 calls the technology "Chip-Multiprocessing (CMP)" but I have
never seen terminology for referring to the on-core processors
individually.

They do call the SMT units "threads" obviously, however, so if Alan is
OK with it maybe we should go with Jun's opinion and name the field
"thread" ?
