SMP and kernel poll

In the R11B-0 release you can either start a node with SMP support or 
have kernel poll, but not both.

I suppose that the kernel poll feature isn't compatible yet with the SMP 
support.  Is this something that will be available soon?

$ erl +K true
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.5 [source] [async-threads:0] [hipe] 
[kernel-poll:true]

Eshell V5.5  (abort with ^G)
1> q().
ok

$ erl +K true -smp
kernel-poll not supported; "K" parameter ignored
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.5 [source] [smp:2] [async-threads:0] [hipe]

Eshell V5.5  (abort with ^G)
