Well, it can be really hard to filter out whether a problem is somehow
self-inflicted or caused by the kernel proper - thus we generally prefer
over-reporting over under-reporting.

Even if it's self-inflicted it's useful on a meta level: if many people
report it then we might end up adding more safety guards to disable a
particular common pattern of shoot-foot-self incidents.
