Before it blew up, my old NSLU2 (a 266MHz ARM with 32MB RAM) used to
take 15-20 minutes to run update-initramfs. As the configure stage for
packages requires coddling, since many packages want user intervention,
I couldn't even let it run overnight --- I had to sit and stare at it
while it ran. Multiple update-initramfs calls made me feel practically
