That's not really correct.  The SMP threading libraries are one aspect
of SMP development work in 5.x, and modulo bugs, optimization,
architectural issues and non-i386 platform support they work.  The
major aspect of SMP development is kernel subsystem locking, which is
not yet complete, and will not be for some time.

If you're willing to deal with the usual caveats of running -CURRENT,
then by all means do so :-)
