Thanks, will try it later.

I think the issue gets fixed by:

# wrmsr -a 0xc0010015 0x1000018

Setting bit 3 of the Hardware Configuration Register to 1.

Quote for the docs:
»TlbCacheDis: cacheable memory disable. Read-write. 0=Enables performance optimization that
assumes PML4, PDP, PDE, and PTE entries are in cacheable WB-DRAM; memory type checks may
be bypassed, and addresses outside of WB-DRAM may result in undefined behavior or NB protocol
errors. 1=Disables performance optimization and allows PML4, PDP, PDE and PTE entries to be in
any memory type. Operating systems that maintain page tables in memory types other than WB-
DRAM must set TlbCacheDis to insure proper operation.«

I've been successfully compiling for over 15 minutes now.
