    And there is your problem. The top level Makefile does "ifdef SMP",
    not "if SMP". "SMP = 0" makes SMP a defined variable, it happens to
    have value 0 but the makefile does not care what the value is, only
    whether SMP is defined or not. So you actually built an SMP kernel
    after all :(. Comment out the "SMP = 1" line.
