Use FreeBSD autoscaler for "stress" tests

The FreeBSD autoscaler has been configured to utilize the new "instance" GitLab Runner executor to spawn "stress" test CI jobs on AWS EC2 dynamically. A shared GitLab Runner named "freebsd-instance-autoscaler" has been set up in GitLab CI/CD to communicate with EC2, provisioning VM instances on demand based on a FreeBSD 13 AMI image. This image is the same as the one previously used for FreeBSD "stress" tests before the implementation of autoscaling (specifically, the "" GitLab Runner in CI/CD).
