That is a complicated question - because linux-next also has patches
by Arjan that
change how (when) cpus are brought online. Initially I blamed his
patches and tried
reverting them ... and saw the symptom you are wondering about (message said
"Total of 1 processors", but the BogoMIPs was a number big enough to be all of
them. Thanks to you, I can now understand why.

Fix will be to stop ia64 from messing directly with cpu_online_map?
