I can definitely speak from experience the likelihood of actually
getting substitutes for any aarch64 linux-libre* packages has gone from
"rarely" to "usually", so it has definitely been a huge improvement for
aarch64, where building locally on most aarch64 hardware is very slow.

Does it have faster build machines? Does it keep retrying until it
succeeds? Building linux-libre* packages for usually
timeout when building the source due to long periods with no output...
