Hi Andi,

I applied v3 to rc6+ and did the rudimentary tests that I did with
v1, i.e. make menuconfig, make, make clean, git status and have nothing
to report.

For times an sizes I did tests with my system's .config -- prior to each
`make' I did a `make clean':

split-debug:

# time make -j5
...

real 6m21.819s
user 22m48.828s
sys 1m1.804s

# du -sh .
2.6G .

no split-debug:

# time make -j5
...

real 6m40.311s
user 23m0.648s
sys 1m4.592s

# du -sh .
4.3G .

Dirk
