In what sense? Do you think I am trying to direct as much bugs as possible
our way? :)

linux-kernel malinglist is focused on vanilla kernel development. i.e. all
the bugs that are present in the current version of the code are very
welcome to be reported here.

SLES10 is based on 2.6.16 kernel, which has little interest for vanilla
kernel developers. The bug you might be seeing could be caused by some
SLES-specific patch (which is not probable, there are not many out-of-tree
patches really), could have been fixed already a long time ago in upstream
kernel version, or could be still present. Upstream kernel developers are
interested only in the latest case. Otherwise, it's up to your distro
kernel vendor to provide support.
