As far as I understand, you just unplug the old CPU from the socket and
plug-in the new
CPU. Nothing more should change.

I think, I would have to verify it, that Linux will automatically pick up
the change in CPU next
time that it reboots. If there is any additional optimization to do  to make
Linux use both cores
to the max I do not know yet.
