Depends. I plan to experiment with different locking schemes on HT
processors which may lead to completely different scheduling
abstractions for HT and real SMP, but this is still open. Therefore, yes
the cache line migration costs are lower, and no, you still may have to
migrate the thread and therefore potentially trigger an IPI.
