I'm afraid you misunderstand. i386 SMP support remains on a branch.
CVS puts files which haven't yet appeared in mainline in the attic,
just like files which have been deprecated.

Note that the "sommerfeld_i386_mp_1" branch is slightly out of date
with respect to -current; you may want to backrev to a slightly older
-current using cvs -D before doing the cvs update -rsommerfeld_i386_mp_1 
in sys/arch/i386
