    Well right now we set it to 32...

    I think out-of-the-box Linux, with SMP set, should support the maximum
    number of CPUs. While we do save some memory I do not think it is going
    to be huge with 8 vs 32.

    But whatever you, Linus, and the arch maintainers say... all my boxen
    are 2-way so I don't care ;)

    Not sure to be honest. The subject was "[patch] CONFIG_NR_CPUS"

    Or ask Andrew...
