Oooh, yes! So 2.6 will be just fine for my smp dsl router...

Seriously, we are getting closer to the day notebooks start shipping with
multi-core processors, and it's not beyond belief that a dsl router would
benefit from this as well. I.e., super-high processing power, but hardly
any memory/flash required. Xmeta, listening? What better geek trophy than
a 4-way notebook.
