    Yes, that's true. Only one CPU is online at that early point.

    It's difficult for me to write such code, as I'm unable to test CPU
    hotplug; my machines are a Turion X2 laptop and a Athlon Barton desktop
    computer. So I can't turn off, or unplug in a software sense, one CPU core.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see any way to do that in /sys/devices/system/cpu/

    But I suppose I could write a patch very carefully, and then submit to
    someone that can test this. Anyway, I'll look into this and try to
    understand the code without being able to test.
