Let's tell syzbot about the fix:

#syz fix: rcu-tasks: Add RCU tasks to rcutorture writer stall output

I think what you are doing is the best possible option in the current situation.
I don't think requiring all human maintainers to do more manual
repetitive work, which is not well defined and even without a way to
really require something from them is scalable nor reliable nor the
right approach.

We would consume something like LKGR [1] if it existed for the kernel.
But it would require tighter integration of testing systems with
kernel dev processes, or of course throwing more manual labor at it to
track all uncoordinated testing systems and publishing LKGR tags.
