I can probably encourage you for this project, but I'm not sure if I'd
be able to help very well.  I'm still on the struggle bus with the Hurd
development.  I have a ever growing Hurd cheatsheet, but I am no CS

Also how does one implement SMP via hardware and NOT software?  Is this
a portable approach to do SMP?  Will this approach allow SMP on Intel,
AMD, ARM, POWER, and RISC chips?

Honestly, I could probably just spend some time trying to update the
Hurd wiki.  A lot of places just need some documentation updates.  Like
a lot. hahaha.
