"1S/4C/1T" mean return core list with the first four physical cores on the first socket. Definitely this configuration should be workable on 2S system.
Similarly, "2S/4C/1T" mean return core list with the first physical cores belong to first and second socket.
When developing the test suite, core requirement has been determined. So you do not need to change the configuration.
Suites should check returned core list and alert when cores can't fulfill the requirement.
