check-atomics.sh is (was) single-threaded, so the relative pain factor
will increase with the number of cores.

I forget :) - I can't get at that machine from here. Recentish
Ubuntu(ish) on a 12-core.

It seems to be partially fixed in today's linux-next? On this 12-core
Ubuntu 17.10 bash-4.4-5ubuntu1 box the delta is 25.9s -> 27.2s.

But my one-liner remains cruelly unapplied so the build still generates
errors. All that seems to have changed today is that the -EPERM is simply
dropped on the floor rather than terminating the build.
