x/build: transparent TryBot retries mask stalls that should be fixed #42699
I noticed a stall on a SlowBot (#39665 (comment)), and when I went to check on it again I noticed that the counter had reset and the builder had restarted.
This timeout-and-retry behavior seems to paper over a systemic problem to make it less noticeable, but if it were instead more noticeable we might have a better picture of how and why it occurs — and might be better equipped to fix the underlying problem (and speed up the perceived TryBot speed by eliminating the spurious timeouts entirely).
