Wrong number of CPU's in /proc/cpuinfo

Hi all,

we are running SAP Application servers on Dell-Systems.
I realized on two new machines that the number of CPU's
in /proc/cpuinfo isn't right.
E.g. on a 2 CPU System /proc/cpuinfo contains the information
of 4 CPU's.
Also top think the system has 4 CPU's.

We are running SLES7 with 2.4.18-64GB-SMP kernel.
Any ideas why we see 4 CPU's ?
