That config seems reasonable. A GPU config would make some sense, but I'm
not sure if there's a CUDA version that officially supports gcc past 4.7?
Is there value in a Sanitizers_and_analyzers build configuration? Since
they will often run more slowly, we might want to separate them so it is
easier to make sure they get executors before the general builds.
I've lately compiled clang-3.4 and gcc-4.7 for one or two new slaves (and
4.8 is underway for bs_nix64) which should give us some breathing room for
non-GPU job types away from the GPU slaves (1204, 1310). The current
Gerrit_Gromacs_5_0 config is using clang-3.4 label (and default GMX_SIMD)
to float those jobs as an experiment in load balancing.
