irqbalance on HT capable PE4600?

after the very interesting discussion on how to distribute IRQs on SMP
maschines some time ago on this list, I wanted to ask what is best on
Hyperthreading enabled cpus?
I'm using two 4600s, one with dual Xeon, one with single Xeon, both HT
While the dual maschine runs RH8 with irqbalance the single one runs 7.3
without but with smp enabled kernel:
[root at Notes-ext2 root]# cat /proc/interrupts
0: 112264897 0 IO-APIC-edge timer
1: 28 0 IO-APIC-edge keyboard
2: 0 0 XT-PIC cascade
8: 1 0 IO-APIC-edge rtc
14: 2 0 IO-APIC-edge ide0
19: 7131821 0 IO-APIC-level eth0
23: 5622208 0 IO-APIC-level gdth
NMI: 0 0
LOC: 112254283 112254209
Is it a good idea to update to RH8 (or newer?) and use irqbalance daemon
here with ht?
Will this lead to better performance?
