Eric Chet (who i know because i work with him) and about 12 other people are
working on SMP support for the x86 familiy under FreeBSD. it looks good.
needs a bit of work yet, but they have made much progress. after they get
things cleaned up i heard rumors of the NetBSD crew using their work to get
SMP working under the NetBSD/i386 line, i don't know how relevant that is to
SMP/vax, but it is a start at least i'm sure.
