Thanks Aleksandr. From what I can see, the fix is working for new filesystem
bugs: the filesystem(s) involved get added to the title and the recipients.

One question: what happens to all the open bugs, like this one ("WARNING in
do_mkdirat") that were reported before the syzbot fix? Are they going to be
re-reported correctly? Perhaps any bug whose reproducer includes
"syz_mount_image" and was reported before the date of this fix should be
invalidated more aggressively than usual, so that it can be re-reported?
