Nice.  I hope you will make your code available even if unfinished so
people can see (and maybe help), sooner rather than later.  The hurd
sourceforge project might be a good place for this right now.  If it is
kept reasonably cleanly isolated, we would love to incorporate this into
GNU Mach when it's in shape, and have 2.0 include the user-mode-Mach build

I would certainly not recommend that you start that way.  Even hardware
aside, the MP code is sufficiently bit-rotted that you are probably asking
for trouble.  For any port, whether to hardware or software, it just plain
makes good horse sense to get the NCPUS==1 build working and stable before
trying MP.
