Sounds reasonable; I've applied a fix to HEAD.  BTW, I've dug out a
piece of code I wrote to allow relatively portable CPU number detection
on SMP architectures


it's GPL'ed, but as I'm the copyright holder and since it's very
trivial, I think I could easily rework it to use in OpenLDAP.  Apart
from agreeing on the "right" algorithm for slapd, could it be useful to
spawn as many threads as the available CPUs when running in tool mode?
