While we're here, convert this EXISTS subquery to a JOIN.

Perf: runtime of my test case now ~200-300s.

Example query before (from the Perl DBI trace):

      SELECT * FROM (
        SELECT DISTINCT flight, blessing
             FROM flights
             JOIN runvars r1 USING (flight)

            WHERE (branch='xen-unstable')
              AND ( (TRUE AND flight <= 151903) AND (blessing='real') )
                  AND EXISTS (SELECT 1
                            FROM jobs
                           WHERE jobs.flight = flights.flight
                             AND jobs.job = ?)

              AND r1.name LIKE 'built_revision_%'
              AND r1.name = ?
              AND r1.val= ?

            ORDER BY flight DESC
            LIMIT 1000
      ) AS sub
      ORDER BY blessing ASC, flight DESC

With bind variables:

     "test-armhf-armhf-libvirt"
     'built_revision_xen'
     '165f3afbfc3db70fcfdccad07085cde0a03c858b'

After:

      WITH sub AS (
        SELECT DISTINCT flight, blessing
             FROM flights
             JOIN runvars r1 USING (flight)

            WHERE (branch='xen-unstable')
              AND ( (TRUE AND flight <= 151903) AND (blessing='real') )
              AND r1.name LIKE 'built_revision_%'
              AND r1.name = ?
              AND r1.val= ?

            ORDER BY flight DESC
            LIMIT 1000
      )
      SELECT *
        FROM sub
        JOIN jobs USING (flight)

       WHERE (1=1)
                  AND jobs.job = ?

      ORDER BY blessing ASC, flight DESC

With bind variables:

    'built_revision_xen'
    '165f3afbfc3db70fcfdccad07085cde0a03c858b'
    "test-armhf-armhf-libvirt"

Diff to the query:

-      SELECT * FROM (
+      WITH sub AS (
         SELECT DISTINCT flight, blessing
              FROM flights
              JOIN runvars r1 USING (flight)

             WHERE (branch='xen-unstable')
               AND ( (TRUE AND flight <= 151903) AND (blessing='real') )
-                  AND EXISTS (SELECT 1
-                            FROM jobs
-                           WHERE jobs.flight = flights.flight
-                             AND jobs.job = ?)
-
               AND r1.name LIKE 'built_revision_%'
               AND r1.name = ?
               AND r1.val= ?

             ORDER BY flight DESC
             LIMIT 1000
-      ) AS sub
+      )
+      SELECT *
+        FROM sub
+        JOIN jobs USING (flight)
+
+       WHERE (1=1)
+                  AND jobs.job = ?
+
       ORDER BY blessing ASC, flight DESC
