Integration Trees closed, high number of pending linux compile jobs

Seems we have currently a high number of pending linux compile jobs since no linux build started since about 0:30am Pacific 

M-c seems fine but the integration trees are hit hard and so closed.

Could someone look into this?
btw is this the same as bug 950702 again ?

Looks like aws_watch_pending can't acquire it's local lock file...

I tried to start instances by hand and got "insufficient capacity" for use1 a, b, c, and d and usw2 a, b, and c.

Some ideas from IRC:
- Purchase reserved instances now -- if doing so will make machines immediately available
- Spin up usw1 capacity -- if there's availability there
Maybe could also create new instances of a different type. i2.* were announced today!

Rail, your input here would be invaluable.

Per i2 instances are HVM based and all ours instances are pv-grub based (see for the details).

As a result we can't easily switch to this type right now.

In case it helps, try seems to be picking these jobs up with some delay, but still.
So far we see no issues on our side. Looks like AWS is very busy due to the holidays. There was a blog post about c3.* shortage a week ago ( Probably now they are hitting m3.* as well...

We'll continue to monitor and update by EoD.
I've converted bld-linux64-ec2-475 to m3.2xlarge (a faster but more expensive instance type) and was successful in starting it.  We may be able to start more of this type to reduce load.
Looks like the things look better now, we have all ec2 builders running now.

Services has also seen some connectivity issues with use1, so suspect some of this is AWS holiday load issues.
