In that case it's very useful to start the commit with:

System XYZ crashes during bootup due to a bug in numa= command line option
handling.

That will also cause me to add an immediate -stable backport tag from me, even if
you dont add it. Keeping it all optional and theoretical with 'it may crash' wording
just hides the essential piece of information that there's a real system affected by
the bug.

Thanks,

Ingo
