    SubjectRE: [PATCH] x86: Removing unnecessary check in detect_ht
    Date
    Hi Ingo,

    Reposting as per your feedback.

    Thanks,
    Nikhil

    ---
    This patch removes a check that causes incorrect scheduler domain
    setup (SMP instead of SMT) and bootlog warning messages when cpuid
    extensions for topology enumeration are not supported and the number
    of processors reported to the OS is smaller than smp_num_siblings
