They're all running standard unmodified GENERIC, except for when I'm
testing random options for deployment, so that means 4.x is not SMP
and has ACPI, as NOACPI & MP are separate kernels. At the moment, none
of them have more than 1 CPU available to them. The 5.x & current VMs
don't have SMP or ACPI disabled. I've also installed open-vm-tools
from pkgsrc on all of them. I don't quite remember, but I think when I
last ran NetBSD 3.x in an emulator (at least a couple years ago) it
did need special options enabled or disabled in the kernel, but I
don't recall which, and that might have been in Parallels, which I
gave up on before Parallels 3 came out.
