I think you should be asking yourself why this so slow.  Is your system's
directly cache too small?  Disk performance problems?  Is there contention
for locks on the svn database?

You might also ask yourself if 5000 devices in a single group is a good
design.  Seems like that would produce rather overwhelming diffs.

Not with the current code.
