I meant precisely this: Given that you have obviously not tried kbuild 2.5, your comments are utterly meaningless. The fact that you are satisfied with the old kbuild has absolutely nothing to do with kbuild 2.5 or it's being ready for integration into the 2.5 kernel (clue: the development tree.. where things change/improve).

I did not jump down your throat, I carefully molded my reply to be as accurate as possible, and aimed it at your head. Unfortunately, your buttocks seem to have also been in the line of fire.

You're right.. we do think differently.
I don't want the existing problems with the kernel build process to continue forever, and that Keith is doing something about them. I think that's great.
