Right, I can confirm this in my build status logs. The tip HEADs are
typically committed XX hours ago:

    dir branch           NR      sha     age             local time        compile time
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

/*
 *  tip origin/perf/core [79/79] 32c46e5 (26 hours ago)  2012-06-21 21:28  01:27:38 / 16 = 328s
 */

/*
 *  tip origin/tools/kvm [46/47] f974d07 (30 hours ago)  2012-06-21 21:31  00:00:00 / 1 = 0s
 */

/*
 *  tip origin/x86/cleanups [3/3] e5a7286 (13 hours ago)  2012-06-21 21:48  00:00:00 / 1 = 0s
 */

/*
 *  tip origin/x86/debug [4/8] 6a991ac (26 hours ago)  2012-06-21 22:26  00:00:01 / 1 = 1s
 */

Thanks,
