    Thanks Ingo!

    I've pulled the THREAD_ORDER change from my next version of the patch.
    Seems SMP_MAX is just not ready for prime time yet.

    One problem that I'm having appears to be that the !NUMA config of the
    current -mm version also doesn't boot so I haven't been able to verify
    that. (At least it doesn't seem to make it worse... ;-)

    Thanks,
    Mike
