You have a Quad CPU Q6600 with "ht" hyper threading but it only reports 2 processors?

Q6600 is processor with no HT at all, but with 4 physical cores. This is virtual environment of some kind (maybe qemu? or xen with custom kernel - I have just noticed that name of our product for which this server is testing place is present in the name of the kernel) with limited number of available cores. Only two are.

That makes sense. Perhaps not the best candidate for thread affinity, but the software should still work.
