[scheduling] Workers on openqaworker2 stuck frequently
Workers of following classes on
openqaworker2 host stuck every couple of days:
svirt-hyperv2012r2. I had to restart them manually, so they are untangled and accept jobs again.
On surface, from openQA dashboard, the affected worker has a job from SLES15 SP1 build 157.1 "running" for 2-3 days. Canceling the job didn't work, new job wasn't acquired from the pool. Worker service restart did the job for the time being, but the worker stuck again after 3 days.
This is one such a worker:

I think there was also another ticket but this one is what I got looking for "stuck" in the subject:
It seems like we have big backlog of especially ipmi and s390x-kvm tests on osd scheduled for multiple days and the according workers report as "Working" but also for a period longer than a day already, e.g.
https://openqa.suse.de/admin/workers/1246 , https://openqa.suse.de/admin/workers/1245 , https://openqa.suse.de/admin/workers/1243

Yes, the restructuring should help because the worker would re-register and the web UI will mark the job as incomplete then. (Triggering the re-registration by restarting the worker was the current workaround.) And the worker itself should of course also be able to work on further jobs now.
