Why are the VGER snapshots so slow?

It's me again.
The guy who always complains about the sparclinux 2.1 kernel slowness.
I always used the regular 2.1 kernels on my K6, but now I tried the VGER
2.1.63 one on it, too, and it was very noticeably slower than the
regular 2.1 kernel. Why is that so?

Did nobody notice except me?


This taught me a lesson, but I'm not quite sure what it is.
