I have seen reports that both Intel and IBM are working on chipsets
that will support that.   I think the reports were talking many way
SMP but possibly that is because where Itanium is positioned.  This
looks like it may be in the McKinley time frame.  I have a strange
hunch that McKinley will be bus compatible with the P4.  This is what
I am picking up through osmosis reading the reviews.
