Bugs should be reported on LKML and/or if applicable on a respective
subsystem mailinglist. (See MAINTAINERS file of the kernel source.)

Even when bugzilla.kernel.org comes back, report bugs preferably to
mailinglists. Bugzilla is a bug tracker, not so much a reporting tool.
Some maintainers and the good people who track kernel regressions make use
of bugzilla.kernel.org to keep record of bugs. Furthermore, it can of
course be used by reporters too especially if they need to upload
screenshots of a kernel panic or large log files etc..

(That said, bug reports which are entered into bugzilla instead of posted
to a mailinglist are usually forwarded to people or mailinglists who might
be able to handle them.)
