Dear Userbase,

thanks to sephe's great work in the recent weeks, SMP kernels should boot  
and work on UP boxes.

So I've added 'options SMP' to our default GENERIC and X86_64_GENERIC  
kernel configs.

There are people who are using the vanilla GENERIC or X86_64_GENERIC  
config from /usr/src/sys/config (opposed to deriving a customized local  
config from it), hence this heads up to notify you that after upgrading to  
commit e93ca50a, your kernel will be built with 'options SMP'.

There should not be any issues. If there are any issues, please report  
them. Of course, If you comment 'options SMP' in the config, you'll get  
the old behavior back (like it was before that commit).
