      Description

      While I am sitting and watching provisioning going extremely slow (almost an hour going here, now waiting on the step of sudo tar -C /opt/ -Jxf qnx700.tar.xz), I thought it would be nice to have a ticket listing what we could fix. Please comment with your suggestions.

       EDIT: possible areas for improvement

      • Use Zstandard instead of slower compression formats
      • common/unix/install_protobuf.sh seems to take long
      • Keep the read-write qcow2 VM image on the local SSD instead of the NFS share, until provisioning is fully complete
      • Do not compile from source, but precompile whatever is possible (for example qemu is being re-compiled on every provisioning)
