3 days for a kernel is really slow.  Especially considering that the
kernel is far from being our most "expensive" package.

Thank you very much for your kind offer, but if that's the kind of
hardware we have to build our security updates on then I don't think the
security team will want to play along.

I know very little about hppa, but from what I read in this thread -
which was surprisingly helpful so far - it's the kernel that makes stuff
break on newer, faster hardware.  And if we want to provide a stable and
useful port to our users then that needs to get fixed.  Not only so that
we can build packages, but also so that users get a stable system.
