- simple things like compile errors
here. no need to clog up bugzilla with lots of trivial things.

- architecture xxx doesn't compile
there's a few of these now in bugzilla, and personally I don't think
they belong there. Any arch other than i386 is always going to be
playing catchup, and is nearly always out of date in mainline.

- trivial patches
send to rusty, cc here.

- anything else
here. if you don't get a quick-fix, bugzilla it too.
this way important bugs won't get lost amongst the archives.
(as long as bugzilla remains usable)

whilst on the subject of bugzilla:
a few people (myself included) go through the bug database once a week
or so pruning out-of-date/fixed entries. So far the ones I've closed have
been quite sensible, but there are a few there of the form..

"xxx doesn't work in 2.5.47", then Rusty's module rewrite happened,
and the tester didn't (or couldn't) see if it got fixed in subsequent
kernels. I'll send out pings to such reports when they get to something
like 5 kernels old. If the problem then doesn't get re-ACKed, I'll
close it. Any objections?
