So it is slower now, but it's just a matter of resources. Once someone
takes on the SMP it will get there. DragonFly is a small project vs.
FreeBSD. It needs developers.

Also FreeBSD doesn't seem to care for clustering. While significant work
has been done in DragonFly to build single image clustering on top.
