SMP is robust and fast for somekinds of jobs already, and robust and not
fast enough on others. Nothing has happend with SMP of note since 1.3.8x.
For 2.1 it will start to happen again providing we can address issues like
allowing 1Gb of RAM on the intel machines and restructuring some of
the driver code and layers like SCSI a bit to sort stuff out.
