SubjectRE: [2.6.0-test3] Hyperthreading gone
Date
From
Hugh,
My changes go to Marcelo via Andy. This one has been waiting in his
staging area while he was out on vacation. Now that he is back --
unless something broke in his tree -- I assume he'll be sending it along
to Marcelo shortly.

Cheers,
-Len

Ps. If you'd like to see the code, here it is:
Andy's tree:
http://linux-acpi.bkbits.net:8080/linux-acpi-2.4
Len's tree:
http://linux-acpi.bkbits.net:8080/to-andy-2.4

Pps. Feel free to use my intel e-mail account -- I use my yahoo account
mostly to reduce spam so I don't read it every day.
