I've mailed with Theo and his main problem is that they (as the OpenBSD
developers) did not get enough details even after one week. Theo has no
detailed information yet and if this problem affects SMP on i386 he needs
the eyes of 8 of his developers.

Maybe informing them as a group with more information would have been
better, but I cannot really know or say.

Maybe (and hopefully) you two can work this issue out because a good
coorperation and relationship between FreeBSD and OpenBSD benefits all.
