 Looking for MP-BIOS-less patch
Hi all,

I have found an old NCR 3430 system (with MCA, and proprietary MP board)
As of now, I was able to install and recompile linux on it (2.2.14-5.0 and
2.2.18), but I haven't found any way to get smp running.
As far as I know the NCR is not Intel MP compliant.

Looking on the ml archive I found a post from Ingo Molnar for a
"MP-BIOS-less" patch, but I could'nt find it.

So I asking if I can find a patch or there is some boot-parameter for the
kernel 2.2.14 or 2.2.18 or even 2.4.0 for forcing linux to go in MP mode
without an MP compliant Bios.

Thanks in advance
Best regards
