Hmm, maybe you need a bit more memory and ccache. When everything lives
in some cache, git-checkout is almost instantaneous and builds are
reasonably fast as well, about one minute for a kernel+modules build.

Perhaps we need a little nazibot that only allows commits that
don't break the builds ? :)

Actually, git-bisect could use a "dunno" option in general.
Sometimes, even if the builds are perfect, you hit just some other
showstopper that keeps you from probing the problem you're chasing.
