No, you are here in the description of the CONFIGURE_SCHEDULER_EDF
configuration option. It describes what happens if you do a

I think the "If configured" is very confusing. The EDF SMP scheduler is
used if you don't configure anything except
CONFIGURE_MAXIMUM_PROCESSORS. This is what most users should do.
I will try to create a documentation patch.
