Hyperthreading And SMP kernel

Is there a performance increase when you use a intel hyper-threading cpu and booting a smp kernel rather than booting a normal kernel?

Not really. There is a slight improvement in responsiveness but if you time compiling a large package it doesn't make much difference.
