Tetsuo, thanks for notifying again.

Yes, kernel devs breaking all testing happens from time to time and
currently there is no good way to address this.
Other things I remember is the introduction of CONFIG_DEBUG_MEMORY,
which defaults to =n and disables KASAN, which in turn produced an
explosion of assorted crashes caused by memory corruptions; also
periodic changes in kernel crash messages which I assume all testing
systems parse and need to understand.

Is there already a mailing list for this? Or should we create one?
I.e. announce and changes that may need actions from all testing
Another thing that may benefit from announcements is addition of new
useful debugging configs. Currently they are introduced silently and
don't reach the target audience.
