Thanks, that was helpful. Comparison numbers for a null update of the 2.3
kernel, which means you update and then update again, timing the second update
to get some idea of the system's best case throughput, are:

CVS: 139.5 seconds
BK: 1.6 seconds

The BK tree is the 2.3 kernel tree maintained by FSMlabs.
