[yocto-autobuilder2][PATCH] add prioritizeBuilders

Trevor Gamblin

This prioritizeBuilders function sorts builders by the length of their
associated worker lists, so that builders that can only be assigned to a
small number of workers are assigned to those workers before other
builds that don't have specific needs when resources are limited. An
example might be when a slot is available on an Ubuntu-based worker, and
"oe-selftest-ubuntu" and "genericx86-64" build requests exist in the
queue. Since oe-selftest-ubuntu requires an Ubuntu-based worker and
genericx86-64 does not, genericx86-64 will be assigned a higher value
(lower priority) so that oe-selftest-ubuntu is assigned to that worker
