"""A process that encapsulates the actual content pipeline stage.
The actual pipeline stage can be the builder or the tester. This process
continuously pull tasks from the queue until a poison pill is received.
Once a job is received, it will hand it to the actual stage for processing.
Each pipeline stage contains three modules.
The first module continuously pulls task from the input queue. It searches the
cache to check whether the task has encountered before. If so, duplicate
computation can be avoided.
The second module consists of a pool of workers that do the actual work, e.g.,
the worker will compile the source code and get the image in the builder
pipeline stage.
The third module is a helper that put the result cost to the cost field of the
duplicate tasks. For example, if two tasks are equivalent, only one task, say
t1 will be executed and the other task, say t2 will not be executed. The third
mode gets the result from t1, when it is available and set the cost of t2 to
be the same as that of t1.
