Unfortunately SMP is not yet working on 64-bit SPARC systems. Works well on
32-bit SPARC systems, but is still using a big lock rather than the more
fine grained SMP of FreeBSD/Linux/DragonflyBSD/Solaris.

FWIW, I'm very happy with my pair of SM61-powered machines running NetBSD
3.0. If my dual SM81-2 SS20 didn't run so hot, I'd use it more.
