ACPI oddity

On a HT system, why does ACPI recognize CPU0 and CPU1, refer to them as such in dmesg, and then call them CPU1 and CPU2 in /proc/acpi/processor?

In uni kernels the single processor is CPU0.

This is a 2.6.10 kernel, the machine has been up since then. I have other 2.6 machines and other SMP and/or HT machines, but all of the HT machines running 2.6 are behind a hard firewall except one.

It's running the ASUS P4P800 board which is why I looked, BIOS 1086.
