buildbot: Prioritize builders

Reported by: raimue (Rainer Müller) Owned by: admin@…

We should prioritize builders on buildbot, such that jobs like portindex take precedence over base and ports. Under full load it can happen that buildbot only schedules builds for the port-* builders as they are usually the oldest.

This ticket was prompted by a commit that modified a few hundred python ports, which due to the number of subports triggered up to a thousand builds per worker. Josh found that we were setting cachedbuildrequests to 1000 in the buildbot master.cfg; the total number of build requests exceeded this number. I increased it to 20,000 after which it seems to be much happier and builds are now happening on all queues.
