One thing I wonder about - could you separate out the bug-ons and warnings
from the oopses? They really are different issues, and an oops with
register information etc is very different from a BUG() with line numbers,
which in turn is very different from a WARN_ON().

Right now, it says

Oopses reported for kernel 2.6.24-rc7

7 oopses reported

hfsplus_releasepage 3
enqueue_task 1
lock_acquire 1
__hfs_brec_find 1
__ieee80211_rx 1

and in fact three of those five entries are really WARN_ON's. It would be
nicer if it would look more along the lines of

Backtraces reported for kernel 2.6.24-rc7

4 oopses reported

hfsplus_releasepage 3
__hfs_brec_find 1

3 warnings repored

enqueue_task 1
lock_acquire 1
__ieee80211_rx 1

because those things really don't have the same kind of impact at all, and
tend to be very different to debug (a "BUG_ON()" is perhaps somewhat
closer to an oops, but a WARN_ON() is definitely in a class of its own).

On that "Code:" side, it seems there is still some problem with oops
parsing. See for example:

and notice how the Code: never made it into the raw message (and thus
there is also no instruction disassembly).
