I've ported the patch that allows SMP kernels to run with less overhead
on UP systems to amd64. I have no way to test it though, so I need
guinea pigs^W^Wbrave volunteers to test my build. The main testers I
need are not the SMP folks (although testing and feedback is appreciated
by these people), but the UP folks running mainly k8 hardware.

Please install, and after rebooting check for this message:

SMP alternatives: switching to UP code

Email me or kernel-team at with results, thanks and happy
