I'm thinking of ordering one of the multi-core banana pi. Does the Slackware Arm current kernel have SMP built in or would I need to compile my own kernel?

I think you should be ok on any multicore machine regardless of what version of Slackware you use.

So far, Banana PI M1 seem to have most of the features supported by -current

The upcomming next release will spread support to Orange Pi as well, at least to some extent.

So far Banana Is the only pi fully officially supported

It is an A20 dualcore with quite an overclock margin, as far as I tested it (runs off an 3.5" HDD PSU at the moment)

Also it offers running managed off an single LI-Po cell, contrary to other pi-s
