Re: Disabling ACPI also implicitly disables SMP support for Intel Atom chips?

Is it a given that disabling ACPI also disables SMP (well, really SMT,
technically) with Intel Atom chips? (Or others?) The i386 boot prompt
offers the choice of disabling ACPI only, but when I choose it on my
LG X110 netbook, the kernel doesn't recognize the HT capabilities of
the CPU. In order to get SMP, I have to enable ACPI. Is this
something I should PR, or is it just the nature of things here? (This
is with 5.0 RC2, incidentally.)
Does your motherboard have MP BIOS extensions (the fallback when ACPI
isn't enabled)? I suspect not.
