[ejabberd] Clustered eJabberds not load-balancing

I've found the reason: I had SMP on both nodes enabled which resulted in  
massive context switching (more than 2000 switches/s) and slowed down the  
cluster. Now, I've disabled SMP and the cluster is 6x faster but the  
second CPU core remains unused. Hmm, too bad.
