From my limited understanding[*], ida is the "We're single threaded,
disable the 2nd core, and clock the first core faster" magic.
It doesn't need code-changes, as its all done in hardware afaik.

identifying & exporting the flags on earlier kernels should be harmless,
but not really 'mustfix'.

[*] As in I've read about this more on the inquirer etc than
I have on Intel docs so far. ;-)
