Kiss CentOS unit tests good bye (on mozilla-central)

Hi all,
This was discussed few weeks ago in the Tuesday planning meeting and
it is now that I was able to discontinue the unit test coverage on the
build machines on mozilla-central.

We now have unit tests coverage only on the Talos/Rev3 machines on
Fedora 12.
To note that up until now we were having dual coverage (CentOS and
Fedora) and we were just waiting for the right moment to stop running
unit tests on the Linux build VMs.

What does this mean for a developer? You won't see on TBPL something
like this:
Mo (1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 oth oth)
but instead this:
Mo (1 2 3 4 5 oth)
Makes sense?

This will enable us to free a lot of load from the Linux builders and
we can re-purpose some machines were we need them more.

The next step will be to enable Fedora coverage on more branches but
we need few improvements on the talos master before we can do it.
After that and only then we will be able to disable completely the
CentOS coverage for the remaining branches.

CentOS coverage was disabled this morning in bug:
