Nested scrolling window for logs in stage steps instead of extending whole page

      Description

      When the logs for a step in a stage are very long, it becomes difficult to re-collapse that step to look at another or get back to the top of the pipeline to select another stage/ parallel branch etc. Instead of expanding the whole page, I think it would be better to have the log be inside a scrollable window with a max height of the window height minus some border for example (perhaps with a corner to drag down like multi-line text boxes. This would make the whole page length only the length of the graph, plus steps, plus the one expanded step with a log window of say 40 lines instead of potentially thousands of lines long.

      This would help with the issue outlined in JENKINS-41885 when trying to monitor the logs of a running pipeline.

            Chris Wright our solution here is to make the "step header" stick to the top of the window as the log grows so it is only a quick mouse away to close. Take a look at JENKINS-35864 and let me know if this sounds good to you.

            Appologies, I had a hunt through the tickets but didn't see anything. That sounds like a good solution, thanks!
