how to reduce time of git pulling each time when you do a make world on Xen source

I am compiling xen from source and each time I do a `make world`
it basically gives some or the other error
my problem are not those errors ( I am trying to debug them)
but the problem is each time when I do a `make world`

Xen basically pulls things from git repository

    + rm -rf linux-2.6-pvops.git linux-2.6-pvops.git.tmp
    + mkdir linux-2.6-pvops.git.tmp
    + rmdir linux-2.6-pvops.git.tmp
    + git clone -o xen -n
    Initialized empty Git repository in
    remote: Counting objects: 1941611, done.
    remote: Compressing objects: 100% (319127/319127), done.
remote: Total 1941611 (delta 1614302), reused 1930655 (delta 1604595)
**Receiving objects: 20% (1941611/1941611), 98.17 MiB | 87 KiB/s, done.**

and if you notice the last line it is still consuming my bandwidth
pulling things from internet.How can I stop this step each time and
use existing git repository?
