commit 074b9d02f1ca01007f39adbc019763027a51d9bd
Author: Ludovic Courtès <address@hidden>

    base: Let sqlite handle deduplication of the list of pending derivations.
    Previously we would make a SQL query that would return many build jobs,
    and then call 'delete-duplicates' on that.  This was extremely wasteful
    because the list of returned by the query was huge leading to a heap of
    several tens of GiB on a big database, and 'delete-duplicates' would
    lead to more GC and it would take ages.
    Furthermore, since 'delete-duplicates' is written in C as of Guile
    2.2.3, it is uninterruptible from Fiber's viewpoint.  Consequently, the
    kernel thread running the 'restart-builds' fiber would never schedule
    other fibers, which could lead to deadlocks--e.g., since fibers are
    scheduled on a circular shuffled list of kernel threads, once every N
    times, a web server fiber would be sent to that kernel thread and not be
    * src/cuirass/base.scm (shuffle-jobs): Remove.
    (shuffle-derivations): New procedure.
    (spawn-builds): Take a list of derivations instead of a list of jobs.
    (restart-builds): Remove 'builds' parameter.  Remove 'delete-duplicates'
    call.  Remove done/remaining partitioning.
    (build-packages): Adjust to pass 'spawn-builds' a list of derivations.
    * bin/ (main): Remove computation of PENDING.  Remove second
    parameter in call to 'restart-builds'.
