I was told to set the maximum amount of shared memory between processors
among the kernel options. Can anyone tell me how to do that?
Can I take it (based on recent experience) that it's a really bad idea
to try to boot an SMP kernel on non-SMP machines? What about booting a
non-SMP kernel on SMP machines?
Just curious, I suspect I'll know the answer to this question from
direct personal experience before any of you get a chance to answer me,
but I would at least like to hear some of the reasons why this
should/should not work.
