as I explained earlier.. tb job are per platform/config and are not
linked... so there is no garanteed that a given commit will get a tb
build on every config

one reason among other is the huge disparity in build time... so the
setup favor quick turn around per platform/config and maximal coverage
rather than big blocking check-all on the same commit setup

But ultimately the solution is to concentrate on gerrit build
verificatio, ot add the same coverage than tb there.. and leave the tb
as they are..
that way if something pass gerrit build verification it _will_ pass tb
so always green tb become a 'always gerrit workflow'
