I don't think you should feel like it's a lack of support.  We just want to
fix it to make it simpler at the same time.

I don't think we need to make the SMP check.  Can't we just put in an assert
that checks for RAMBASE < 0xa0000 and eheap > 0xa0000?  One large stack
could just as easily break this.
