I have some very general questions:
1) What is the status on SMP in NetBSD?
I searched the tech-smp archives, and it looks like the MP kernels are
working, but everyone is sending dmesg reports. Is the second CPU just
recognized, or does the OS actually make use of it?
2) When is it most likely, that we will see SMP for i386, in a -release
version of NetBSD?
3) How stable will it be once it's in -release? (Ok this sounds like a
stupid question, maybe I should rephrase to "how stable is it right now")
4) Is there a shortage of hardware or developers? Or both?
Even though, this is a very lowtraffic list, please e-mail me privately if
you decide to respond. Thanks for your time and efford (for working on SMP).
