Re: Does NetBSD-arm support SMP ?
Not at the moment. The existing support is around the acorn32 Hydra,
and that's not really fully supported.
Does NetBSD-arm support SMP ?
I get to know the new Cortex-A8 is a dual core.
I believe that first we'd need an updated pmap, which the work Matt is
doing in the matt-armv6 branch would help with (as I think Cortex is
armv7?) the reason for this is the handling of virtual vs physical
addresses, all the older arms use virtually indexed and tagged cache
making SMP very hard to do.
Of course the sooner someone gets their hands on these things the sooner
it'd be ported to :)
