valid values are:

smp_num_cpus: 0,1...NR_CPUS
smp_processor_id(): 0,1,...smp_num_cpus [consecutive]

the thing returned in /proc/cpuinfo is the 'physical' (APIC) number of the
CPU, which does not have to be consecutive. (but you should not be worried
about physical numbering, it shows up basically nowhere)
