As you perhaps read in another mail ... the point was, that Linux
2.0.36 SMP capabilities are something for /dev/null.

In FreeBSD we had immediately very good results. Seems to be,
that in Linux the way was a bit harder or in the last minute
they deceided not to include further stuff into the 2.0.x kernel.

Now we are "only" 19% better comparing the 2.2.3 kernel with our
3.1-STABLE. This certainly sounds better for your ears ;-)
