I repeated the test with SuSE Linux, kernel 2.2.3.

Result. FreeBSD SMP is still somewhat faster (119% percent of Linux SMP).

Linux SMP has best performance with 2 parallel processes and looses
some CPU cycles, if 4 or more jobs are fired up.

Well, now we only need some true SMP benchmarks...

             FreeBSD SMP is approximately 120% of Linux SMP
