I know it is fully supported in 2.6.x series, but it used to be supported on 2.4.20 and below and now it disappeared on 2.4.21 to 2.4.23 as far reporting the hyperthreaded Xeons processors. If there is a patch for this that enables it and support it, I would appreciate it so I can get this back on the kernel and have it running.
