D'oh. Still too early in the morning...

OK, Linux thinks it has two CPUs. Period.

For some reason I forgot that 'cpuinfo' simply returns what the CPU
reports... so the CPU knows it's dual-core, and reports this. That
doesn't mean Linux has to recognize that there are really 4 CPUs...

So, problem solved (at least from Open MPI's standpoint...)
