Yes of course, 100% better plan. Although its probably going to have to 
be more of a case of walking all the possible cores and assuring they 
have the same flag level (similar to how the socket flag is handled). Of 
course that information is useful enough it should probably just be done 
as part of the normal cpu topology walk. Then the people who have to 
back port these patches end up with a big dependent set... <chuckle>
