It depend on the builders, but I think i would remove 10% for a start,
so around 4.

Now, not all builders are equal, I am not gonna remove the debian nor
the freebsd one, of course.

I think the easiest would be to mark them offline in jenkins, see if
that create issues (such as the queue becoming large), and if nothing
happen, remove them.

AFAIK, thoses are mostly here for smoke tests, format, warnings, etc.
So fast jobs.
