Yes. The MIPS is a likely candidate for SMP support. I changed the attributes of this ticket to make them more correct. This is unlikely to happen unless someone volunteers or pays a core developer.

A first and useful step would be to figure out if the MIPS Malta BSP can support multicore on Qemu. Otherwise, AFAIK this effort will require a new BSP also for an SMP capable platform. Perhaps there is a qemu target other than the Malta which is useful for this. I just don't know and some research is needed to make a project plan.
