Hi Ingo,

Thank you for pushing the patch to 2.6.25-rc2. I have tested
2.6.26-rc2 for correct topology information and parsing by irqbalance
daemon in the following system configurations:

32-bit Two socket dual core xeon 5160 processor system
32-bit Two socket quad core xeon E5450 processor system
