Doing a full 'buildworld' is the safest approach, but since it can take
over two hours on my tired, old system (I don't call it 'tortoise' for
nothing) I'm looking for every opportunity to reduce that time. The
Handbook advises using NO_CLEAN with buildworld only if you have passed the
"Build Everything" step on the last attempt, which a good last build would
have done.

BTW, I like your kernel name.
