Yes, though I am not sure if that is because there is only one active CPU (there is
still only one if I say "-smp 4" on the qemu command line).

Good question. I only see this with one of 9 ppc emulations, with 85xx/mpc85xx_cds_defconfig
+CONFIG_DEVTMPFS=y +CONFIG_SMP=y. Maybe there is a platform specific init function
which leaves interrupts disabled. Question is which one that might be.
