which kernel/OS ?

Hello,

I'm building up an OpenBSD box on an Atom D510 (dual core) platform
running -current . Use will be strictly as a firewall running PF. I've
read that SMP doesn't really help PF, but it may assist in speeding up
compiling when keeping up with -current. What are the tradeoffs here?
Will the mp kernel harm PF performance? As x86 and amd64 are both
supported are there any strong arguments for running either one?

Thanks,

Chris
