As I understand it,
    OpenBSD will not have SMP any time soon.  Supposedly it opens up far too
many security holes to have a second processor enabled.  This may eventually
be fixed, and as I am not on the dev team, I have no clue how long it might
(This is just the impression I got, I may be dead wrong)

Anyone hear how far OpenBSD/SPARC is from multiprocessor support?
I have been very happy with it on my working SPARCs, but when I
finish ressurrecting my 670MP, I'd hate to only run on one cylinder,
so to speak.
