I'm not sure that would work for mesa since the hierarchy of jobs
branches out pretty far.. ie. if I just clicked the arm64 build + test
container jobs, and everything else ran automatically after that, it
would end up running all the CI jobs for all the arm devices (or at
least all the 64b ones)

I'm not sure why gitlab works this way, a more sensible approach would
be to click on the last jobs you want to run and for that to
automatically propagate up to run the jobs needed to run clicked job.
