The PR is '6928':

If you do get an SMP kernel built, perhaps you could make it available
somewhere?  A friend has an SMP box, and we have a number at work,
it would be cool to boot a test kernel and at least see the second
CPU spin up. :)  I haven't tried building my own yet, though it 
might not be bad, since it is now possible to checkout the exact
files the diff is for.
