Moving to ASSIGNED state until fix is checked into CVS.

Comment 10 Brian Maly 2005-06-17 16:58:54 UTC
its also worth mentioning that this is an x86_64 only issue. the 'ht' flag shows
up in /proc/cpuinfo on 2.4.21 32 bit kernels.

Comment 11 Ernie Petrides 2005-06-17 18:45:54 UTC
Fixing "Hardware" field (setting to "ia32e").

Comment 12 Ernie Petrides 2005-06-17 23:01:30 UTC
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U6
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-32.9.EL).

Comment 15 Brian Maly 2005-08-22 14:32:19 UTC
verification test:

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep ht

ht thread should appear on ia32e hardware
