    Yeah that would be very nice to have.

    Technology must advance. We can't stop progress.

    Okay, other than the ext4 problem fixed by the patch in Comment #3 the only other issue I've had with 5.8-rc1 is the rtl8812au dkms driver for my Edimax AC-1200 adapter. I created a patch that appears to fix it and posted it at https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au/issues/658 for the developers.

    Even my now somewhat aging i7-4790 compiles my real-world kernel (what I use on a desktop/development system every day) from a clean start in eight minutes and that's on a lightly loaded machine running a standard desktop environment. Who doesn't have eight minutes to spare?

    In case you haven't noticed, they keep adding more optimizations and passes to the compiler simply because there's room for some extra processing thanks to improvements in hardware. If you want to compile fast, just use some minimal C compiler. C is also a horrible language when it comes to parsing and incremental compilation.

    Mentioning Linus AMD purchase in this context....does this mean, Kernel Release Size was bottlenecked by his lame Intel rig before?
