Just continue with buildkernel for now

Full buildworlds again, as there’s more commits that make it necessary.  If you’re running 2.7, you should probably just plan on using buildworld, and not quickworld for rebuilding.

    This is just FUD.

    I’ve been quickworld/kerneling across the whole select/poll and mpsafe changes times and nothing during that time ever broke that would have worked with a full buildkernel/world.

    Sure, quick* don’t build from time to time. Well, just do a build* _then_.

    I’m using quick* regularly (that is, every few days) over the past, dunno, 6 years?… basically since we have it, and there were maybe 5 cases all in all in that time, where quick* succeeded building but the result wouldn’t run _and_ it was fixed by doing a full build* cycle.

  2. Concur with Sascha, you really only need to resort to a full buildkernel/world if quick* blows up.

  3. FUD seems a harsh term. I’m not trying to raise doubts about something through dire, overblown predictions. I’m reporting that Matt’s recommending a full buildworld process based on changes he made. I’m not running a 2.7 system, so I can’t try it myself to see. Geez, Sascha, you’re really getting me down lately.
