Can you document your GitLab runner setup?

G'Day Noel,

Thanks for being such a great user of the new GitLab infrastructure. 

While at SambaXP I helped you debug your GitLab runner setup, so that
you could run the full build of Samba in a personal fork. 

Can you document how that works?  I suspect some Samba developers would
prefer to have a personal fork rather than a shared repo and it would
be helpful to have an explanation on how to do that in the wiki.

If I recall, the key detail was to ensure the docker storage driver is
set to dmmapper. 

Also, can we collaborate on a patch to have it avoid the swapon if
there is already swap or there is enough memory?
