Default GENERIC.MP kernel failing to boot AMD dual-core system < 75% of the time

Hello,

I have an AMD dual-core system which (from my observations) needs the multiprocessor support in order to function "up to speed" (see this thread for example).

NetBSD comes with a multiprocessor kernel -> GENERIC.MP. Great, but the problem is that is fails to fully boot up < 75% of the time. It occurs right at the end of the boot (where the messages turn from green to white again - I don't know the technical name for that, if anyone could educate me). It says cpu1: CPU1 is running and that is it. It just freezes and doesn't continue. I have to push the reset button to reboot the system.

I am thinking of compiling my own kernel in the hopes of resolving this issue. Any suggestions?
