Subject: [PATCH] arch/x86: Initialize __max_smt_threads to 1

A single socket, single core, single thread system has __max_smt_threads
set to 0 since smp_callin() is not called.

__max_smt_threads must be a minimum of 1.

Fixes: b1cbacc8663a ("x86/smpboot: Do not use smp_num_siblings in __max_logical_packages calculation)
