Package: linux-image-2.6.17-2-686
Version: 2.6.17-6
Severity: minor

It seems unfortunate that the package description doesn't mention that you no
longer need a -smp kernel to support hyperthreading.  I'd deferred upgrading
for some time because I was waiting for a package I no longer need.  The 686
smp packages used to say explicitly that they had smp support.

it is nowadays expected that a gneric linux image detects
it's cpu on runtime thanks to cpu hotplug.
you only need the -smp package for archs where it explicitly exists.

closing in this round of bugs cleanup.
