one thought.. since with mesa+margebot we effectively get at least
two(ish) CI runs per MR, ie. one when it is initially pushed, and one
when margebot rebases and tries to merge, could we leverage this to
have trimmed down pre-margebot CI which tries to just target affected
drivers, with margebot doing a full CI run (when it is potentially
batching together multiple MRs)?

Seems like a way to reduce our CI runs with a good safety net to
prevent things from slipping through the cracks.

(Not sure how much that would help reduce bandwidth costs, but I guess
it should help a bit.)
