Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
Linux ............ 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 #1 SMP Wed May 23 22:35:01 EDT 2007 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux

No SMP flag

Additional info:
The same bug on FC6 too.
Comment 1 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2007-06-13 07:51:24 EDT
Fedora's i686 kernels are compiled with SMP support enabled. The display of
"SMP" refers to the feature of the kernel, not of the system.
