As I understand it you can use the Final Gather "Use File" option to both save and re-load your FG calculations. Check on Rebuild to create, and select a file by pressing the three dots next to Use File. CHeck on Use File and render. Next time you render turn off Rebuild and your render should be faster.

Hope it helps

Rebuild Checked -> Save to file defined in Use File
Rebuild Unchecked -> Take FG from Use File

Could it be more simple than that?
