That is not precisely the situation. The Hurd has (in theory) excellent
support for multiprocessors, i.e. it is highly multithreaded. However,
neither gnumach nor oskit-mach currently has working SMP support. The Mach
code base supports SMP in general, and there have been working SMP versions
in the past; there should not be an unreasonable amount of work in making
SMP work in either kernel.
