Faceting on multi-value fields is more a function of the number of
terms in the field (and their distribution) rather than the number of
hits for a query.  That said, perhaps faceting should be able to bail
out if there are no hits.

Is your question more about why faceting takes so long in general, or
why it takes so long if there are no results?  If you haven't, try
optimizing your index for facet faceting in general.  How many docs do
you have in your index?

As a side note, the way multi-valued faceting currently works, it's
actually normally faster if the query returns a large number of hits.
