Indeed. 6 min to 45 min for allmodconfig. However, it's only 5 min to
run checks with only this file. I'd expect a more linear hit. Maybe
we're exceeding some cache size and thrashing.

How? I've looked at optimizing things some and implemented areas I
found (primarily, saving the fixed-up schema and not printing line
numbers (of the yaml encoded DT)).

I've been wanting to have some way to categorize checks, so we can
split rules from pedantic guidance. Maybe we can add a level keyword
in select or something.

Short term, I'm fine with just disabling this one by default with
'select: false'.
