Is SMP enabled in the GENERIC kernel? I have a hyperthreading box, and on

The GENERIC does not support SMP.

If you look into the config files you will see two kernel configuration files: SMP and GENERIC, SMP simply changes the IDENT, sets option SMP and includes GENERIC.

Simply build and install your kernel,

# make KERNCONF=SMP buildkernel
# make KERNCONF=SMP installkernel

to get an SMP enabled GENERIC kernel.
