Ahah! 15 RPM drives, no wonder! :)
On a serious note, can you do that same test, with '-j 4' or higher? I
think you can easily do two per processor, at least that's what I do on
a Core 2 Duo.
-j 3 buildkernel: 13:23
-j 4 buildkernel: 12:38
-j 5 buildkernel: 12:41
-j 6 buildkernel: 12:47
-j 3 buildkernel: 11:43
-j 4 buildkernel: 12:02
So sched_ule seems to handle more processes slightly better than 4bsd
albeit it does it slower. ule's sweet spot is -j 4 and 4bsd is -j 3.
When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentlest gamester is the soonest winner.
