The GENERIC does not support SMP.
If you look into the config files you will see two kernel configuration
files: SMP and GENERIC, SMP simply changes the IDENT, sets option SMP
and includes GENERIC.
Simply build and install your kernel,
# make KERNCONF=SMP buildkernel
# make KERNCONF=SMP installkernel
to get an SMP enabled GENERIC kernel.
Cheers, Erik (I assume you're on v. 6.x).
