No. I'm using vanilla kernels just with exec-shield patch from Ingo Molnar.

My ones are also built with SMP support, because both the 64bit machines
have dual-core CPUs. One of them is Pentium-D and the second is Dual Opteron.

OK. These machines build a kernel in 3 minutes, no problem to try to disable
SMP and verify.
  However, the 32bit one is also SMP :-); it's MSI K7D Master board populated
with 2 Athlons MP. It works perfectly and it's ideal for gaming, because one
CPU handles Xserver and similar and the other runs the game :-). wine has no
problems with it.

Will do.
