  Change the default for hyperthreading (or, generally speaking, cases
  where the L1 cache is shared between CPUs) to disabled for security
  reasons.  As in earlier releases, this can be changed by setting
  machdep.hyperthreading_allowed=1 in /boot/loader.conf.
  This is not an MFC -- no seatbelts in CURRENT.
