The question here is if this is a new failure in 3.10, not if it has been
fixed in a later kernel version.

For my part I used to report such persistent failures. However, I find it
useless and even confusing to report "yep, still fails", unless there is
a plan to fix it, so I don't do that anymore. Otherwise it is just a waste
of test resources, and it makes it difficult to understand the test summary.

If I _do_ report such failures, I track down the cause and the fix, and ask
the branch maintainer to apply the necessary patch(es).
