Sadly with larger sets the performance hit is much worse. I enabled all of
the layers in meta-oe, and ran this with empty sstate and build directories:
bitbake -p; time bitbake -n -k world

The outcomes are:

(this is the baseline; the bulk of the time goes towards going through the
task list without executing the tasks - the 'spinning task counter" part)


So there could be something quadratically-growing going on with these new
commits :(

I didn't dare to try master-next after seeing above how it hits
core-image-minimal and master already regressing to over an hour :-(
