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 ;)

Or ask Andrew...
