Well, this is Solaris 10, not Linux, and it's UltraSPARC (presumably
Ultra III), not Intel.  Perhaps someone else may have more accurate
information; I think it's effectively 8 x (4-way hyperthreaded) CPUs,
not 1 x (8-way hyperthreaded).   In any case, different horse from different
stable, so maybe the results will be different.  Maybe _this_ horse will
learn to sing?
