Actually, no. My test is to do a make install over NFS of a kernel that
has already been built.

The times I'm getting for the SLAB is ~26 seconds, the time for the SLOB
is 1 minute 32 seconds. So your looking at >300% slowness here. The test
bed is a UP. (I do that first before looking into SMP).

I'm still trying to keep the SLOB simple. It's the lack of sleep that is
making it hard ;)
