    SubjectRe: CONFIG_SMP patch (vs. 2.1.92)

    I'm planning to re-release this patch about two weekends from now.
    I'm working on drivers/sound/Makefile stuff right now and I need to
    finish that first. Plus, this patch will be a lot more testable once
    the 2.1.XX sparc and sparc64 trees compile in stock form

    Someone could patch scripts/checkconfig.pl to exempt linux/config.h.
    If CONFIG_SMP goes in the kernel, those lines in include/linux/config.h
    are a compatibility bridge that will go away about 2.3.10 anyways.

    Cheers,
