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

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?

Input subsystem.

It's great you've replied immediately, what about hundreds or even
thousands of other bug reports where people have no clue who has to be

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

platform wdat_wdt: failed to claim resource 5: [mem

$ find . | grep wdat_wdt
$ ./scripts/ --file ./drivers/watchdog/wdat_wdt.c
Wim Van Sebroeck <wim@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> (maintainer:WATCHDOG DEVICE DRIVERS)
Guenter Roeck <linux@xxxxxxxxxxxx> (maintainer:WATCHDOG DEVICE DRIVERS)

linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (open list)

ACPI: watchdog: Device creation failed: -16
ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve symbol

(AE_NOT_FOUND) (20220331/psparse-529)

And it's not just ACPI, what about "platform wdat_wdt: failed to claim
resource 5", "platform MSFT0101:00: failed to claim resource 1",
"lis3lv02d: unknown sensor type 0x0"?

I know you can probably identify the related components in a few
seconds, but I'm quite sure you won't be doing that for every bug report.

Should this be addressed?
