To get optimal performance, should one turn hyperthreading on or off?

One advantage of HT is that if I want to not run all my cores, because I'm using the computer, and I don't trust that putting the process on "Low Priority" is good enough, then with HT I can mine with 7/8 "cores", while without it I have to choose between 3/4 and 4/4.

Raw performance wise, how does HT affect mining speed?
LiteCoin is right around the corner.

In linux64 on a 2600k with default compiling options, HT doesn't help or hurts performance.
In linux64 on a 2600k with AVX enabled in compilation of the client, HT helps significantly.

i7 920 on linux64, -march=native -O3 -msse4.2:  HT yields 1% more hash at a cost of about 3 degrees more per core.
