Description Evangelos Foutras 2012-08-15 05:12:59 UTC
/proc/cpuinfo on Linux 3.5 (and Linux 3.5.1) contains different values for cpu0's "siblings" and cpu1's "siblings" and "cpu cores", compared to the values seen on Linux 3.4.8 (and previous versions).

I came across a relevant-looking fix [1] but it's already included in Linux 3.5.x.

The CPU is an Intel Atom N270 [2] (1 core with Hyper-Threading).
