Same here. I've been running my client for some months now, probably not
as long as yours.

Hm, your cache seems to be rather inefficient, considering the cache
size and hit/miss ratio. Also your percentage of linking operations is a
lot higher than mine...

I have more items in the cache, taking a lot less space. What is it
caching for you? Did you also compile other things using the rockbox

I don't remember the exact value, but it was pretty close to what ccache
reported, certainly not off by a factor of 4.
Which file system are you using? I'm using XFS with 4K block size.
