So gerrit-buildbot plugin was extended. New Gerrit change screen has now
Schedule button. When activated, a popup dialog appears, where custom
build options and even optional platforms can be specified [1].

The build scheduled in this way exposes the passed option(s) to engaged

davido at wizball:~>ssh gerrit buildbot get -p test_project [...]
GERRIT_OPT='--enable-extension-integration --enable-ext-wiki-publisher'

The only missing part is on tinderbox side to pick up the options and
pass them to the build.
