Ronald: it is mentioned in some books (a Google search can turn them up), but they don't really offer much description behind the intent.  When I looked into this several years ago, it was very unclear what `hw.activecpu` was intended for.  It sounded more like a report about how many processors are active, versus targetting your SMP aware application to that number.

But since you've turned some information in sysctl.h, I think we should follow that advice and use hw.activecpu.  I've attached a new patch with the change.
