NXP i.MX6ULL EVK and Linux Kernel CONFIG_SMP

99 Views
Contributor III

The default kernel configuration file for i.MX6ULL EVK has the CONFIG_SMP set.

I was wondering if the CONFIG_SMP should be set for uniprocessor systems like i.MX6ULL.

If so, what would be a use case or a reason for enabling CONFIG_SMP?

My understanding is that CONFIG_SMP should be unset for uniprocessor systems for efficiency.

Thank you so much,

Dawei

Hi Dawei

you are right, for processor with one core linux CONFIG_SMP is not needed.
