Yes, I'm reading the CPU documentation now.

I found the code in northbridge/amd/amdk8 seems only support single node
now. So step you will add SMP support via MACRO define. ( CONFIG_SMP and
CPU_NUM ). Is it right?

There are a lot of hard codes that need to removed, in that code.
It is only appropriate for developers wanting to improve it.  It
is not appropriate for general purpose use yet.

Read the fine cpu documentation.

Beyond that if you get to the point where you are actively working
and contributing this I would be happy to synchronize with you.
Until that point all I can say is that the code is coming along,
but the code is quite a ways from being general purpose yet.
