Florian, at the moment, in 2.4 and in 2.6, you do have to specify the
"acpismp=force" boot parameter to get HT to work with CPU Enumeration
Only: it can't enable full ACPI since you don't have full ACPI built in,
so no need to hesitate. But of course it's stupid, and the ACPI guys
agree it's wrong and to be fixed.

Len, what's up with this? I'm not worried about 2.6 right now, but
4 weeks ago you were about to submit a patch to fix this for 2.4.22,
which is now at 2.4.22-rc2 and still behaving as broken in -pre1.

Is it time to dig out my own patch and send to Marcelo again?
