Surely you are aware how much time it takes to rebuild a chroot on
slower architectures. Some technology able to restore a large
directory tree to a static default in short time should be used here.

I am not sure whether LVM (have a LV with the master chroot image,
make a snapshot, build inside the snapshot, remove the snapshot) could
help here.
