I agree about the PMOS suggestion. An important advantage of the output transistor connected as source follower is less current dependent gain. For the compensation, I'm pretty sure that C1 should be used rather than C2. The latter doesn't cancel the gate capacitance related pole and may have difficulties to achieve stable behavior at all.

In case of a constant current source at first the current will flow at contant rate, so the voltage increase will be linear, but if it is not ideal case where the supply voltage is infinite, finally, the current will decrease --> it asymptotically approaches zero for longer, and longer times. Similarly the charge (voltage) (...)
