due largely to the efforts of paul kranenburg, SMP support on sparc has
finally arrived. this has only been tested successfully so far on an
ss20/712, an sun4/690 and an ss10/712 (i think), with a failure on a
4/670. hypersparc support is almost certainly busted...
there are still some bugs and there are lots of implementation details
that could be reworked, but it seems pretty stable and performant so far.
see my boot log below.
