If you can figure out what subsystem is the likely source of the issue,
then you can check the MAINTAINERS file for the appropriate people and
mailing list. If there's a panic or oops, find the source file that is to
blame and use ./scripts/ -f <file>. Otherwise, just
report some unknown, untriaged error directly to and be sure to cc Andrew Morton
<> who used to go through the bugzilla
quite often and send bug reports in the right direction.
