Probably yes....

As for pushing all kernels at the ~same time was intentional this time...

I wanted to see how the BS would handle max load now that new
ecosse is working too (as kernel builds do manage to max out
  buildnodes due to good support for parallel builds)

But I didn't even think about valstar getting into trouble :/

core kernel is the worst one for rpmlint as all rpms +
their unpacked contents need ~20+ GB diskspace (every
kernel-*-debug needs some 2+ GB) ....

But otoh I think it was nice side-effect to identify a SPOF
now (instead of release time) so we can get it fixed...

question is... do we somehow need to limit how many rpmlint
processes is started (depending on cpu load or free disk space
in /rmp), or should we just hope the extra disk space is enough ?

  Because load on the server was too high, I killed all rpmlint processes,

So whah happend to the packages being rpmlinted ? did they get uploaded 
anyway ?

That will help not hitting this issue again...
