buildbot: Prioritize builders

Description

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.
