thank all for the answers that made me sure i was reading nonsense.
Now i can install FreeBSD/amd64 6.0 being sure i will get stable (and
fast) system. As stable as my FreeBSD/i386 6.0 system, on which FreeBSD is
the only OS in which 2 CPUs works fine.
not new hardware, dual PII/400 "Compaq Professional Workstation", on which
NetBSD quickly crashes with SMP enabled, Linux works not much faster than
on one CPU with fast serial working (and i don't like to use linux),
FreeBSD runs fast well using both CPUs
It's easily using up both CPUs for apps under both low and high
disk/network load, so giant locks isn't that a problem now in 6.0.
