Hmm, I kind of like this idea.  No worries about slowing down the gate 
with new transient failures, but we gain the speed benefits on checks.  
And it seems to me that anything failing in the gate with serial jobs 
that passed the parallel check job is a bug anyway, and not necessarily 
something that would be avoided by running the check serially.  After 
all, they're running the exact same tests, right?

Maybe there are other less pleasant complications from that sort of 
setup that I'm missing, but it seems like a good first step to me.
