I've got to say my experience with Github CIs has been pretty
unpleasant.  Pretty much every project I've ever pushed to has had at
least one commit reject because of a bug in the CI rather than the
commit which they usually dump on the submitter to fix.  As an endless
devops make work project, I'm sure they're fine, but what we have now
with 0-day is pretty much good enough for most kernel work, plus if it
goes wrong we can ignore it and somebody else fixes it ...
