Well... I noticed my builds when little changed are very slow... and
it was due to the computation of version string. Ouch.
pavel@amd:~/mainline-altera/linux$ time git describe
0.68user 0.22system 27.82 (0m27.820s) elapsed 3.26%CPU
(Cached it is more reasonable 3 seconds, but it keeps going out of
cache all the time. Uncached clean build is 3 minutes, cached is 9
seconds + time to do git describe).
