SubjectSMP Kernels and non-Intel processors
I am getting damn tired of SMP=1 being the default.  If you have a
broken MP BIOS (Tyan Tomcat IV), it sees a phantom second cpu which it
fails to start. THEN, it tries to access the IO-APIC, which doesn't
exist on a K6, and completely crashes the machine. Somebody, please
change this so that if there is not an Intel processor, regardless if
the mobo is SMP capable, DO NOT enable the SMP extras.

SMP kernels should work on all UP machines, not just Intels.
