The pipeline needs access to various kernel repositories. To reduce network
traffic and increase resilience against temporary network problems, those
repositories are mirrored into an S3 bucket by the git-cache-updater.
Kernel repositories are not cloned directly. Instead, the cache version is
downloaded and updated via
git fetch. Internal repositories are cloned
directly, but the cached version is used as a fallback in case anything goes
wrong during cloning.
