I've posted a patch to make webkit-patch warn users when they're on a 64-bit
system with a 32-bit git:
4 seconds on every git status is huge. webkit-patch upload has to run at
least 3 git status commands (due to expecting files to change on disk during
operation), so this means a savings of 12 seconds on your machine!
