FreeBSD 6.2: freebsd-update and SMP Kernel

Hi list,

i've built a SMP Kernel on an amd64 system because the GENERIC kernel on
my amd64 FreeBSD 6.2 box did not include SMP support. After booting with
the new kernel freebsd-update won't work:

# freebsd-update fetch
Cannot identify running kernel

# uname -a
FreeBSD hostname 6.2-RELEASE-p8 FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p8 #0: Sun Dec  2
17:48:26 CET 2007     root at hostname:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SMP  amd64

I've used the default SMP config in /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf/. How can I
fix this issues? Is there any prebuilt SMP kernel available that can I
install and keep up to date with freebsd-update?
