Jenkins "tie to node" to speed up scm checkout

Since we are not (yet) building on multiple slaves in "local mode", meaning the local jenkins, scm checkouts are performed 3 (!!!) times.
Example: Job-generator without fast mode (see #216) checks out the repo to parse it. The job is created, the "master", which in this
case is also the build slave, checks out the repo, then the build slave (same machine) is triggered --- checks it out again. This could take
up to 15 minutes for a 400MB repository (MORSE). However, we can make use of the "tie job to node" feature of jenkins which reduces
the checkout by 1.
I am not sure if this is a feature of a multi-conf job or not. I guess so.
