    release/amd64        boot_crunch.conf 
    release/i386         boot_crunch.conf 
    release/ia64         boot_crunch.conf 
    release/pc98         boot_crunch.conf 
    usr.sbin/sysinstall  Makefile dist.c dist.h install.c menus.c 
  Added files:
    usr.sbin/sysinstall  acpi.c acpidump.h biosmptable.c 
  Revamp base system packaging of kernels to enable up/smp selection
  at runtime and to support distributing additional kernels:
  o remove kernel from the base tarball
  o add new kernel tarballs
  o build + package both SMP and GENERIC kernels when an <arch>/conf/SMP
    config file is present
  o add sysinstall support for multiple kernels
  o update sysinstall to probe for the number of cpus on a system
    and auto-select smp/up kernel accordingly
  o add a post-kernels install hook to fixup /boot/kernel
  o add -ldevinfo to boot crunch for sysinstall's cpu probing logic
  1. On HEAD this code is not currently used because GENERIC kernels
     include SMP.  This work is mainly intended for RELENG_6 where the
     GENERIC kernel is UP.  If HEAD changes to match then just enable
     WITH_SMP in sysinstall/Makefile.
  2. The cpu probing support is done with acpi and MPTable; this means
     some systems will require work for auto-detection to work.
  3. The handling of /boot/kernel may need to be revisited; for now
     we rename one kernel at the last moment (SMP if installed, otherwise
     GENERIC).  There are other, possibly better, approaches.
  Lots of help from ru, emaste, scottl, and jhb.
