I just wanted to drop this as a note so that I won't forget about it and maybe some (masochistic) people want to pick up these as a task.

For sensible MP development, we need:

- a core dump format which will reflect lwps
- a GDB which can handle lwps
- best a KGDB which works with vkernels/threads
- a working kernel profiler (pmc, oprofile, at least working gprof, dtrace?)
did I forget something?  as ususal, feedback expected.
