Seems jenkins did manage to come back by itself, after 20 minutes.

The good news is that it seems that after 3 days of work, we found a
way (minus some ansible hack to be fixed) to dynamically add builders.
The bad new is that jenkins reload is busted, cause 20 minutes of
downtime do not seems optimal at all, and we would need to fix that
before going on.

For folks who are eager on reading java, that's somewhere here:


( from ./core/src/main/java/hudson/cli/ReloadConfigurationCommand.java
to doReload, to reload to loadTasks).
