Symptoms:
- An Open Server Dell 740/640/ HP ProLiant DL380p how more cores than there actually are. 
- Number of CPU cores in CoreXL license and in output of 'cplic print' do not match.
 

With the legacy kernel (2.6), the HyperThreading (HT) was disable by default for almost all deployment, except for high-end appliances.

With new kernel 3.10 for R80.20 ,R80.30 and R80.40 Check Point aligned with the industry and now HT is set and controlled by the BIOS (on or off).

Therefore R80.20/R80.30/r80.40 Security Management, R80.20 Security Gateway 3.10, R80.30 and next versions will have HT on by default (provided that the BIOS has it enabled).
