Summary: only one CPU is detected when dom0 boots up
Buildingx en0 kernel with bulidconfig/linux-defconfig_xen0_x86_64
orbulidconfig/linux-defconfig_xen0_x86_64, with "CONFIG_SMP=y". When dom0
boots up, /proc/cpuinfo will show only one CPU for SMP. Howwever, "uname -a"
will show the kernel is SMP.
After investigation, I found change set 10139 cause the problem.
some discuss in xen-devel is attached.

It's needed for domU's. Dom0 can bring up SMP without hotplug
