Parent article: SMP alternatives
Can anybody speculate whether this functionality will make various
power management easier on SMP machines? It seems (without any
knowledge to back it up) that each CPU could be removed until there
was a single CPU left, then the same procedure that works on
uniprocessor machines could be performed.
It's a really shame, especially with dual core CPU's and
hyperthreading, that there is a choice between fancy power
management and multiple processors.
