Actually this kind of already happens on the compute node when doing
claims. Even if we do force the host, the claim will fail on the compute
node and we will end up with a consistent scheduling.

This sadly breaks down for stuff that needs to use limits, as limits
won't be set by the filters.

Jay had a BP before to move limits onto compute nodes, which would solve
this issue, as you would not need to run the filters at all - all the
stuff would be known to the compute host that could then easily say
"nice of you to want this here, but it ain't happening".

It will also likely need a check in the retry logic to make sure we
don't hit the host 'retry' number of times.
