I don't think your process would need to be a 'thread' ... at the kernel
level, shouldn't all threads/processes be lightweight kernel threads and
therefore, if your kernel 'sees' two CPUs and it's up to the hyperthread
scheduler to allocate your process context accordingly?
Maybe that's just wrong though.
