    Ugh let's stop this thread now. Two points:

    (a) imo, the kernel should support out-of-the-box the maximum
    number of CPUs it can handle. Be lucky we now have a
    configure option to change that. But that does not matter..

    (b) Right now it is 32. Now you can change it... if you want
    to change the current behavior by _default_ why don't we
    suggest that _after_ this is accepted into 2.5? I.e., one
    battle at a time.
