And? Where's the conflicting part of what I've said?
If you go back just long enough in time, you would see that there was a time
when kullervo had no problems with keeping up at all. And then you see that
arrakis helped kullervo in doing that job.
And coming back to today, you'll notice that m68k has no problems with
keeping up at all.
Spot the differences to other archs yourself.
BTW: don't forget to apply the passwords to your buildds for status updates.
