We do occasionally put CVE numbers in the commit message, but normally
the commit comes first before we ask for a CVE number.

If you want a list of kernel CVEs then you can use the Ubuntu list:
It has the commit which introduced the bug and commit which fixes the
bug. Suse has a public CVE list as well.

You are right that probably some security commits don't get a CVE. When
you spot one then feel free to ask for a CVE from the email list.
