Ok, I was fearing that we'd have to manually trigger each stage of
dependencies in the pipeline.  Which wouldn't be so bad except that
gitlab makes you wait for the previous stage to complete before
triggering the next one.

The ideal thing would be to be able to click any jobs that we want to
run, say "arm64_a630_gles31", and for gitlab to realize that it needs
to automatically trigger dependencies of that job (meson-arm64, and
arm_build+arm_test).  But not sure if that is a thing gitlab can do.

Triggering just the first container jobs and having everything from
there run automatically would be ok if the current rules to filter out
unneeded jobs still apply, ie. a panfrost change isn't triggering
freedreno CI jobs and visa versa.  But tbh I don't understand enough
of what that MR is doing to understand if that is what it does.  (It
was suggested on IRC that this is probably what it does.)
