I installed the 2.8.1 iso on a VM and it seems that it boots into an SMP

I've fixed the bug in my local tree. It seems to be a CD9660 issue (thanks to Samuel J. Greear for helping with bug hunting).

UFS (and hence our USB images) doesn't have it. I guess it has to do with the dots in the directory names (like, kernel.GENERIC) which CD9660 doesn't like.

Also I found it somewhat unusual that if I choose to boot the Install-CD
with SMP Kernel, SMP kernel is not default on the installed system
afterwards, but UP is and I still have to choose SMP in the loader. My
expectation is different.

I have also added this feature to the installer (locally as well) and am testing it at the moment. Will report back later.
