I've routinely used Erlang with SMP & HiPE (in fact running native code) 
with both 8 and 16 x86_64 cores for more than 6 months now without any 
problems.  No threads enabled though.

The 'application' is running the native code compiler & dialyzer in 
parallel with as many schedulers as cores in the machine.
