This sounds like a good idea.  But this patch didn't work for me
to achieve that on my HP 2620.  /proc/cpuinfo with this patch looks
like this:

processor  : 0
physical id: 4294967295

processor  : 1
physical id: 4294967295

So both my Madison cpus are apparently sharing the same socket!  That
big decimal number is just "-1" printed as an unsigned.
