[rc5] several processors

Only if it's multi-threaded.

However, the behaviour of NT MP systems is to dedicate a CPU to running the RC5 
process and let the other CPU deal with running the system. So you'll get like 
100% of one cpu, instead of the 95% you'd get on an idle system. SO it's faster 
but not by a factor of two.
