Patches welcome. :-)

I noticed that master is a bit slower now, but
waiting-for-dependency-to-be-tested now quickly drops. So I restricted
rrdep calculation to non-empty lists ... that was OK for now.

Optimizations possible in _find_packages_ready_for_testing:
* DELETE FROM package_names WHERE package_name IN reserved/*.log
* if len(package_names) > config['max-reserved']
so we can amortize the cost for rrdeps over a larger list of packages
(and skip if for small ones where the first slave gets all testable
packages anyway, so order does not matter)
