It was a while ago...the first of a number of 4.2 S3 related
performance issues that we chasing reports from users / automated QA
that the end result was "slow performance on S3 in XP"

As it turns out - this didn't fix the performance problem...but it
also didn't seem right.

I'm not sure if it is because the non-boot cpus are offlined...but it
would seem to make logical sense.
