Kconfig: update flightly outdated CONFIG_SMP documentation
Remove an outdated reference to "most personal computers" having only one CPU, and change the use of "singleprocessor" and "single processor" in CONFIG_SMP's documentation to "uniprocessor" across all arches where that documentation is present.

machines, but will use only one CPU of a multiprocessor machine. If

will run faster if you say N here.
