Okay, I pulled 2_4_devel this morning and built and SMP kernel my MTX.. it
booted up, but some weird things started happening..

First, exportfs died on bootup..

Starting internet superserver: inetd.
Exporting directories for NFS kernel
daemon.../etc/rc2.d/S20nfs-kernel-server: line 80:   214 Illegal
instruction     $PREFIX/sbin/exportfs -r
Starting NFS kernel daemon: nfsd mountd.

Then, when I tried to log in over serial console, the login process
appeared to die after I entered 'root'.  If I kept trying, I would
occasional actually get a password prompt.

I think there's something going wrong either in the cache flush avoidance
stuff, or in the generic smp VM.

(I'm going to finally update linuxppc_2_4 for MTX SMP later today, so I'll
can hopefully find out if it's a generic VM problem or not)
