Documentation/powerpc/smp.txt is so outdated that it makes sense to just
remove it.

-1. State of Supported Hardware
-  PowerSurge Architecture - tested on UMAX s900, Apple 9600
-    The second processor on this machine boots up just fine and
-    enters its idle loop.  Hopefully a completely working SMP kernel
-    on this machine will be done shortly.
-    The code makes the assumption of only two processors.  The changes
-    necessary to work with any number would not be overly difficult but
-    I don't have any machines with >2 processors so it's not high on my
-    list of priorities.  If anyone else would like do to the work email
-    me and I can point out the places that need changed.  If you have >2
-    processors and don't want to add support yourself let me know and I
-    can take a look into it.
-  BeBox
-    BeBox support hasn't been added to the 2.1.X kernels from 2.0.X
-    but work is being done and SMP support for BeBox is in the works.
-    CHRP SMP works and is fairly solid.  It's been tested on the IBM F50
-    with 4 processors for quite some time now.
