it's good to check if at all the platform per target and per threading too, SMP/HT, x86 or AMD64.
I'm suspecting more than anything else this really affects specially SMP/HT, but specially not missing that information, perhaps even historically we can't assure that, at least that's how I see it without it, what do you think?
Thanks in advance
