kde/kdeutils-3.5.4-i486-2.tgz: Fixed ark crash due to race condition on SMP
machines. Thanks to JaguarWan.

This is an optional kernel with support for SMP (up to 16), dual core
optimizations, and SMT (Hyperthreading). Fully tuned and ready to go.
Optional kernel headers. There will only be needed to compile a few things,
such as apps and libraries that use ALSA (it contains the /usr/include/sound
directory that for 2.4.x kernels is supplied in the alsa-driver package).
Kernel modules for Linux, including ALSA modules.
These install into /lib/modules/
