One thing to remember is that rawhide kernels often have debugging
features turned on that can slow things down compared to the release
kernels. You'll want to make sure your regression tests take that into
That's OK, as the main thing is the tests would tell you relative boot
times. (i.e. today's rawhide is faster/slower than yesterdays).
But, to the horrible 15 minute performance I saw with f8t1 under qemu-
does that fall into the issue you mentioned? I.e. are those debugging
features turned on in f8t1? how about f8t2? What is the quickest way
to determine if they are turned on or not?
