And, according to Michael Karcher whom I fully trust when it comes to
issues like these, this is mostly harmless.

And it's not that Aranym doesn't have it's own problem. I'm still seeing
the issues with kswapd consuming over 50% CPU time from time to time
slowing down the emulated machine quite notably.

qemu-m68k, once the remaining issues have been ironed out, will be
incredibly helpful for catching up with the build queue.
