SubjectRe: Bug: Frame-buffer (icon) rotates right in 2.4.0 when SMP
when you use SMP there's suppOsed to be one icon that shows up for
every CPU you have. 2 cpu = 2 icons, 4 cpu = 4 icon. That's what the for
loop in fbcon_show_logo().

So this really isnt a bug, depending on how you look at it. It's
definitely something the lpp author needs to account for.
