    While he could of wrapped the test dependent in #ifdef/#endif
    CONFIG_SMP, the test really is not overly needed. It is more a result
    of the previous code, which Bob Miller himself fixed up and then much
    rewrote the locking for.

    Since he recently did the cleanup (and even added that BUG_ON) I trust
    he knows if we can remove it.
