:Forgive me if this has been asked many times before, but is DF's SMP out
:from under the 'giant lock' yet?
:Also, has anyone tried building the 'Firebird' database under DF?

    No, not yet.  Little pieces here and there don't use the big giant
    lock, and the network code is very close now (only the IFQUEUE and
    interface interrupts need the BGL now).

    The main sticking point is the I/O path, and we have a plan for that.
