Amazing, that works for me!  I will have a look why this has some
influence on SMP.

The patch I have used for GRUB Legacy is a backport for enabling the
A20 gate from GRUB 2.  I have posted it on the bug-grub mailinglist
in case you are interested and will commit it soon.  Essentially it
does almost the same as the one you are using.
