Maybe there should be (|x|menu)config menu item "SMP symmetric
multiprocessor support" - if that's not possible, I suggest to create
one in spite of that which actually only checks the correct SMP state
in the Makefile and if it's incorrect, it issues an appropriate error
message and aborts the make process.

The former way would look more "professional" however, though the
latter would at least help upgraders find the correct switches so they
do not need to flood mailing lists and newsgroups with the same
question over and over again.
