Linux kernel 2.6.32.38

I intend to use this in the next Wary. PET (29.6MB):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-wary5/linux_kernel-2.6.32.38-w5.pet

Also the headers (719KB):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-wary5/linux_headers_DEV-2.6.32.38.pet

I have uploaded all of the sources, including a kernel SFS file:

SMP or not?
Someone has pointed out in the forum that it is not always apparent which kernels are compiled with SMP. Perhaps it would help to make this very clear in all announcements? I know your announcement of Wary 5.1.1 did make it very clear!

Re 2.6.32.38
Yes, SMP, tickless, and multi-threading fully enabled.

BFS
Barry, have you considered patching Wary's kernel with BFS? I have no idea, a patched 2.6.32 performed better than any other kernel on my end-of-q2-2010 netbook.

I read that BFS should improve performance on single-core machines too, so it could be very useful.
