Re: Planned changes for to reduce the "Bugzilla blues"

Here are two other issues which absolutely suck in terms of dealing with
the kernel.

- 1 -

I have a 20+ years experience in IT and some kernel issues are just
baffling in terms of trying to understand what to do about them.

Here's an example:

What should I do about that? Who's responsible for this? Who should I CC?

And this is an issue which is easy to describe and identify.

- 2 -

Here's another one which is outright puzzling:

You run: dmesg -t --level=emerg,crit,err

And you see some non-descript errors of some kernel subsystems seemingly
failing or being unhappy about your hardware. Errors are as cryptic as
humanly possible, you don't even know what part of kernel has produced them.

OK, as a "power" user I download the kernel source, run `grep -R message
/tmp/linux-5.19` and there are _multiple_ different modules and places
which contain this message.

I'm lost. Send this to LKML? Did that in the long past, no one cared, I

Here's what I'm getting with Linux 5.19.12:

platform wdat_wdt: failed to claim resource 5: [mem
ACPI: watchdog: Device creation failed: -16
ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve symbol
[\_SB.PCI0.XHC.RHUB.TPLD], AE_NOT_FOUND (20220331/psargs-330)
ACPI Error: Aborting method \_SB.UBTC.CR01._PLD due to previous error
(AE_NOT_FOUND) (20220331/psparse-529)
platform MSFT0101:00: failed to claim resource 1: [mem
acpi MSFT0101:00: platform device creation failed: -16
lis3lv02d: unknown sensor type 0x0

Are they serious? Should they be reported or not? Is my laptop properly
working? I have no clue at all.


While we've been talking about bugzilla I thought it would be pertinent
to bring this up.
