Outstanding .. I have now released a 4.9.23-26.el6 and .el7 to the
system as normal updates.  It should be available later today.


I've verified with a second Dell R710 that disabling Hyperthreading/Logical Processor causes the primary xen booting kernel to fail and reboot. Consequently, enabling allows for the system to start as expected and without any issue:
Current tested kernel was: 4.9.13-22.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Sun Feb 26 22:15:59 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I just attempted an update and the 4.9.23-26 is not yet up. Does this update address the Hyperthreading issue in any way?
