Maybe you can also look at bug #235141 (nearly 6 months old), about not

ends up 'rm -rf' the host machine's /dev. Bad....
And /dev/pts and /proc.

speeding up builds, others say that it can sometimes be bad for
reproducability, and that simply saving the yum cache dir would be
Only as an extra option, I assume.
