Yeah, there's probably no mptable on that system. Even if there was, the
data output by it won't compile unless CONFIG_SMP is set in LB (which
you really don't need, since it's not an SMP system).

Uwe recently sent in some fixes to the 440bx to help speed that up, you
should take a look at it. I think one of the issues was with the cpu.
