Between which devices?

It seems that the current HT code (before my dynamic changes) is doing a
wrong assumption when optimizing the connections, that is only right on
the HDAMA. I fixed this a while ago, but it seems, this drowned in the
last big merge of 1.1.6. 
The assumption is that CPU0 and CPU1 are interconnected using the same
link on both CPUs:
optimize_connection(NODE_HT(0), 0x80 + CONNECTION_0_1, NODE_HT(7), 0x80 + CONNECTION_0_1);
The second link specified in the function call has to be from CPU 1 to
0, not from 0 to 1 as the first link. This happens to not matter on
HDAMA, but basically on all other machines. My dynamic connections diff
should fix this (even though it is not optimizing link speed between the
other CPUs yet).
