As I said, stuck Mac jobs reduce the Linux parallelism from 5 to 3.

No, it doesn't, it runs 3. Look at it.
Your delay at this specific moment is indeed due to boostorg/system feature
branch work, but that's because you're lucky. Usually, you'll be stuck
waiting for something like

rallying against feature branches will save you.
