    As I told before, I wouldn't care to do that, as long as I know that
    it is actually being used (and useful). The system (at the server
    side) could automatically route some reports (mark them as "tainted
    modules detected", etc, that sort of mechanical stuff), and according
    to the frequency of certain bugs, I could check if they are actually
    real bugs. If so, they get reported here on LKML. Since we can expect,
    maybe, dozens of thousands of reports per week, wouldn't be hard to
    distinct between real bugs, etc (if we use frequency as a marker). For
    example, if the number of reports on Suspend2 get risen up sensitively
    on some just-released kernel, this means that something that was added
    isn't working (so here comes the personal debug, where we can see if
    it's a new bug or a regression)


    What this world needs is a good five-dollar plasma weapon.
