When Smith confronts The Oracle in her kitchen, he calls her "Mom". Smith's reference of "mom" may refer to the same thing the Architect was referring to in his conversation with Neo: "If I am the father of the Matrix, she would undoubtedly be its mother."
But the Oracle is also Smith's "mom" in a few other ways. By introducing choice into the system, the Oracle introduces both Agent Smith as well as Smith and his qualities:
I do not think that the Oracle actually programmed Smith's hatred or caused Smith to be able to copy over other programs. I think the Architect has more to do with that (see the "Smith" section of Architect: Equation).
