and mbuild is the only reason they're not. The build service can
handle it. People using rpmbuild can use it. It's mbuild that's the issue.
But is it practical then? I mean to build a kernel, you just build a
kernel-$flavor.spec. If you make kernel-$flavor.spec dependent on
kernel-source, then you always have to first build kernel-source.spec

... which is a sane thing to do anyway, as you "must" distribute
kernel-source with any binary kernel package in order to comply with
the GPL.

How does this relate to build ordering?

My personal experience is: given two thinks that must be done, one
you like doing and one you don't like doing, chances to see the
latter done are much higher if the former happens to depend on it
in some way.

Seriously, it doesn't strictly relate to the build ordering, but I
don't think the build order really matters anyway.

(which spends good amount of time in rpmlint),

... peanuts compared to the build time of actual kernel flavors.

On a machine with lots of cpus, the non-paralelized parts like rpmlint
and are the most annoying part. We try to optimize
this, not add more.

If this really bothers you, maybe work on rpmlint and to let them parallelize their work?

Oh, and I doubt takes that long for the
kernel-source package ;) rpmlint, yes, certainly.
