Subject[BUG?] Xeon with HyperThreading and linux-2.4.20-rc2
Hi all,

I've two boxes with Dual Xeons 1.8 GHz and HT option enabled in BIOS. When
I boot 2.4.20-rc2 with default arguments the kernel detects 4 processors and
also reports 4 processors in /proc/cpuinfo wiht the "ht" feature.

However, if I boot with the "noht" option (wich I believed turned off HT
and therefore only two processors should be available), the kernel still
detects 4 processors, _but_ now the "ht" feature in /proc/cpuinfo is not
there. Is this the intention of the "noht" option ? If so, are there any
options available to turn off HT support in the kernel completely, so that
I don't have to go into the BIOS to turn it off ?

If you want to I can provide the dmesg output and .config.

I think this issue is not just related to 2.4.20-rc2, but earlier kernels
