In the case of 4 HT capable CPU's it could be reported like

Seems like a good idea... people frequently get caught by this
discrepancy in numbers to reporting the number of physical and virtual
processors IMO is a good idea... however, I'm not really sure how this
is determined so someone familiar with the ACPI magic would have to
comment of whether or not this is reasonable :)
