I have plenty UP boxes and a few SMP boxes to test on. I am not claiming anyhing, this is just 'food for thought'.Don't they? I thought the only problem for most cases is that the SMP kernels do more heavyweight locking and are therefore slower, and without the gain of parallelism on UP it's a pure loss.
