[20080409] SMP on OpenFirmware based PowerPC machines in-tree
There's more to SMP than just Intel- and -compatible machines. PowerPC-hackers Tim Rightnour and Matt Thomas have added support for SMP on OpenFirmware based PowerPC machines, i.e. the NetBSD/ofppc port. The support is already committed to the NetBSD-current source tree, and Tim has posted the dmesg output of a 4-CPU machine, an IBM 7044-270. He also notes that this is the first PowerPC machine with four processors to ever run NetBSD.
