Yes, enabling or disabling KCSAN seems to make no difference to
compile speed in this config and source file, I still get the 12 seconds
preprocessing time and 9MB file size with KCSAN disabled, possibly
a few percent smaller/faster. I actually thought that CONFIG_FTRACE
had a bigger impact, but disabling that also just reduces the time
by a few percent rather than getting it down to the expected milliseconds.

I agree in general, but building an allyesconfig kernel is still an important
use case that should not take twice as long after a small kernel change
regardless of whether a new feature is used or not. (I have not actually
compared the overall build speed for allmodconfig, as this takes a really
long time at the moment)
