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
