dual core opterons are supported by all kernels.
my quad dual core works on 2.6.5 and 2.6.11 out of the box.
dual core are exactly like dual cpu. the only 2.6.12 "support" is to show
them correctly in /proc/cpuinfo as part of the same die.
kernels < 2.6.12 will show each core as different cpus. no big deal.
