One option is to not care. Once the job is running, let it run through
to fail.

Whats important then is to ensure your job's are not serialized. I see
you have 4 workers enabled, we can add more worker threads if needed -
but it might also be useful to enable multi-jobs so multiple CI runs for
the same job can be executed in parallel.

That way, if you have a fix in 5 min, you can just request a new ci run,
which should start right away, not needing to wait for the first one to

Would that help work around this specific issue ? If so, we can look at
the configs to see how best to implement it. Typically, this is just a
case of turning on a single line in the JJB.
