    Thanks all of you. It seems the problem is ACPI, however, should not
    it be noted in some way? Maybe at Documentation/smp.txt, maybe at the
    help section at CONFIG_SMP, maybe a "depends on ..."

    Or maybe CONFIG_SMP should enable some bits of the ACPI code needed to
    detect such additional cores.
