    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

    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.
