ACPI: delete the "acpi=ht" boot option
acpi=ht was important in 2003 -- before ACPI was universally deployed and enabled by default in the major Linux distributions. At that time, there were a fair number of people who or chose to, or needed to, run with acpi=off, yet also wanted access to Hyper-threading. Today we find that many invocations of "acpi=ht" are accidental, and thus is it possible that it is doing more harm than good. In 2.6.34, we warn on invocation of acpi=ht. In 2.6.35, we delete the boot option. Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
