Klaus Ade asked me to document a workaround while svk is slow.  One
can use the shell in tty2 to replace /target/usr/bin/svk with a
symlink to /bin/true, to avoid the svk calls.  Ie something like this:

  mv /target/usr/bin/svk /target/usr/bin/svk.dontuse
  ln -s /bin/true /target/usr/bin/svk

Happy hacking,
