The queue gets stopped automatically when free disk space drops below a certain
level (10 GB or so), which is happening all the time now. Apparently the garbage
collector cannot reclaim enough disk space anymore, suggesting we have too many
roots (i.e. active Nixpkgs/NixOS jobsets). The Nix store on that machine has 3.6
TB of disk space BTW.
