x/build/cmd/coordinator: the "Go 1.12.x" suffix for trybots sometimes disappears #34234

Trybots test on non-main repos by running on go tip and we have 2 builders that test the 2 current releases (1.13.x and 1.12.x). Those builders are supposed to have a suffix in the title so people can tell them apart, e.g.:

linux-amd64 (Go 1.13.x)
linux-amd64 (Go 1.12.x)

I've noticed some trybot reports do not include the "Go 1.12.x" suffix in some occasions. For example:

Note it says:

2 of 10 TryBots failed:
Failed on linux-amd64 (Go 1.11.x):
Failed on linux-amd64:

The second "linux-amd64" line should've been "linux-amd64 (Go 1.12.x)" because commit 61a5d11 is on 1.12 release branch, not master.

I've seen it happen to my own trybot run just now:


Note that it says "linux-amd64 rev cf06b9aa", which is clearly a 1.12.x commit.

I think I have a lead where to start the investigation.

It seems to happen when a trybot builder is restarted due to a communication error. Specifically, I saw the "linux-amd64 (Go 1.12.x)" builder get a "failed to get a buildlet in 5 minutes" failure, and when it restarted, it said "linux-amd64" without the suffix.

The name is computed in buildStatus.NameAndBranch method, which looks correct.

So the issue is likely that the goBranch isn't set (or maybe the NameAndBranch method isn't called) when a trybot builder is restarted.
