Good point; Good idea!

No ev4, we disable ev in glibc for example. So no need to build a kernel 
for it.

We shouldn't forget ev6 and ev67, there should be a lot of them out 
there. I don't know about ev7, ev7z and the ev68. I think one or the 
other es45 (ev68) should be also out there...

Also a good question. For x86, we don't build extra SMP capable kernels 
anymore, true? Maybe we should do this here as well!? SMP wasn't also 
working stable on alpha. But if it does now, maybe we should enable it 
by default...

Hm. Maybe someone with more knowledge about h/w can answer this; EV5 
afaik doesn't have bwx. And there's the AS1200; SMP capable and with a 
21164 processor, maybe ev5, maybe already ev56 (ev5 was only <= 366 MHz 
and AS1200 has >= 400 Mhz.).

If all this is true :-) I'm sure there's someone who can answer this
