Run any step from job response in a separate BuildSection

Lyubomir Raykov requested to merge custom-build-stage-attempt into master

What does this MR do?

Allows for Gitlab to send arbitrary steps back to the runner for execution. It does it by creating a BuildStage for each step coming from Gitlab. Each one is also wrapped in a BuildSection.

Why was this MR needed?

The first use case for this is automated releases (see epic for issue attached). Gitlab will send a 'release' step which will contain a script to call the Releases API and create a release.

The next step will be to be able to run each step in a separate container with a different image.

Here's an example pipeline run with it:
