Here's a bug report form that will help you include relevant info:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/lkml/reporting-bugs.html

To see what the right people to send your report to are, check the
MAINTAINERS file, the CREDITS file, possibly names listed at the top of
relevant source files, 'git blame <file in question>' is also sometimes
useful to come up with names of people who might be interested.
After adding all the right people to the mail, adding lkml to CC is
usually a good idea.
