working on SMP improvements is a bit difficult currently since I will 
work in this area nearly full time in the next half a year or so. I hope 
that Darshit Shah will work on the SMP scheduler optimizations for the 
arbitrary processor affinities in GSoC 2016.

Adding SMP support to a specific BSP for an architecture that already 
supports SMP (ARM, PowerPC, SPARC) is not enough for a GSoC project. 
Even adding SMP support to new architectures shouldn't be a big deal.
