Wouldn't it be better to define "MPACPI" by default? The number of
NetBSD users with P4 HT system has or will very soon exceed the
number of users with old dual motherboard where MPACPI is broken.
Before some complains:
I do *not* suggest to remove "MPBIOS". The two options can coexists
happily because MPACPI disables MPBIOS if it is able to attach.
