Well, it is faster, but I prefer correct over fast ;)

I first tried this trick with the original 30 MB cache and tried to rm -rf
the original linux tree I untarred. It was quite fast until I started
getting 'no space left on device' errors. So, thinking the cache was to
small I re-inited venus with a 100MB cache, and the rm worked ..

Now I get these errors:
I don't know where the original error was (it scrolled by too fast)

(and yes, I have clog'd in and have tokens..)

tar: linux/include/asm-arm/limits.h: Could not create file: Not a directory
tar: linux/include/asm-arm/vga.h: Could not create file: Not a directory
tar: linux/include/asm-arm/mm-init.h: Could not create file: Not a directory
tar: linux/include/asm-arm/mman.h: Could not create file: Not a directory

I haven't so far been able to get cfs wd working reliably. It seems to
work for a small to medium amount of stuff, but not for large amounts of

Any hints on what to do?
