You need to enable SMP for HT. I don't think it applies to you, but it
seems like all the latest P4 chips have support for HT according to
/proc/cpuinfo (eg, my laptop ("Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 Mobile CPU 1.50GHz")
has the ht flag set) but HT doesn't actually work. Not sure what Intel
were thinking there.
