I don't knwon really about multiprocessor on RTEMS but
you should try some more recent BSP and version of
RTEMS (4.6 pre 4), but I have some stupid question

Do you really need multiprocessing feature ?

Multiprocesing feature is for multi-processor hardware
not for create processes or threads in my mind.

Hope that's help
