I would love to get some users for it and some motivation through
bugreports. The package was ment for the users themself and not for
buildds so it doesn't use a chroot and doesn't interact with buildd.
But on most hardware running a kernel compile parallel to buildd
probably doesn't hurt.

It also predates the name change to linux-kernel so it probably
doesn't work at all anymore but that should be easy to fix. Try it,
write bugs and I will try to fix them over X-Mas.
