That was the proper course of action, unfortunately it would not solve
this issue.  The root cause is Zuul ended up being stalled completely
while reporting a change back to Gerrit. That is a blocking operation
with no timeout.

The next step in this case would have been to restart Zuul entirely.

I have documented the incident on wikitech:
