P4 with Hyperthreading: Should the SMP support be enabled at kernel level?

Under make xconfig -> Processor type and feature, there is an option to enable SMP. However, under the description, there is nothing mentioned about processor with hyperthreading.

Must I enable SMP support in the kernel for the hyperthreading feature to be utilitised?

Thanks !

As far as I know SMP stands for symmetric multi-processing, in other words dual-processing. I'm not sure how it relates to Hyper-Threading Technology.
