Serialise making the "sets" tarballs in the maketars target.
On many systems, making them in parallel causes very poor
system performance due to disk I/O. (Requested by jmmv.)
On my development system this adds a lot of time to a release
build, and I'd
like to revert it. My system is not affected, but if it were I
why any of these would not be a valid solution:
o use smaller value for -j
o analyze the problem on the affected systems
o buy more spindles
i agree; i didn't like this change when it went in because it also
made my own build slower.
Seems very odd to punish all builders simply because people want to
build with -j numbers too high for their system to handle...
It's not like this is a default. You're making a conscious choice to
add -j and therefore have to tune what works..
