#3169 assigned defect

Latent Slaves are started serially.

Reported by: tom.prince Owned by: tom.prince
Priority: major Milestone: 0.9.+
Version: 0.8.10 Keywords: latent
Cc: caktux@…, pumpkingod@…

Description (last modified by dustin)

Because BuildRequestDistributor._activityLoop waits for self._maybeStartBuildsOnBuilder to finish with a lock held, only one slave can start at a time.

I've noticed that changing this interacts poorly with the logic to find a slave that has an available lock.

This also affects every other build, which all hang while waiting for a latent buildslave to become available. This is a blocking issue in every sense.
