I haven't updated my system since August, but back then the "apic" device 
was also required.  5.3 may be different.
This is the relevant section from my 5.2-CURRENT hyperthreading kernel 
from last August.

# To make an SMP kernel, the next two are needed
options         SMP             # Symmetric MultiProcessor Kernel
device          apic            # I/O APIC
