SubjectRe: SMP/cc Cluster description

- lower overhead for SMP systems. We can use UP kernels local
to each CPU. Should make kernel compiles faster. ;-)

Actually, this isn't what is being proposed. Something like
"4 cpu" SMP kernels.

At the very least it is well worth investigating. Bootstrapping the
ccCluster work shouldn't take more than a week or so, which will let
us attach some hard numbers to the kind of impact it has on purely
cpu local tasks.

I think it is worth considering too, but I don't know if a week
estimate is sane or not :-)
