As Bjørn further notes:

And even if you're unable to fix it, a good bug report against a pre-release
kernel is worth its weight in gold.  (Good == one that has error messages, info
like "I used this kernel", and "it only happens when I have CONFIG_FROBOZZ
defined", and directed to the appropriate maintainers). Bonus points if you
can do a 'git bisect' down to a specific commit and cc: the author of that
