For the record, and again underlining that this isn't the problem I was
discussing originally: an allmodconfig build on my workstation takes a
over 38 minutes. This is a Xeon 5520 CPU (4 cores + HT) and I'm
building on an SSD. The machine is otherwise idle. While this isn't
exactly brand new hardware, it is still reasonably powerful, and 38
minutes is time, especially when you're waiting for the build to
complete before you can resume working on something.
