This "BUILD REGRESSION" report lists errors in all commits of a branch
-- ie. not only the showed HEAD commit. Sure "all commits" will be too
huge for the mainline kernel, so there will be limits applied.

Recently we lowered the threshold to 2 before sending unsolicited
reports like this. That threshold means when we find >= 3 errors in a
tree, only the first 2 will be reported in the regular way (reporting
to the first bad commit). The more errors will be send in a summary
"BUILD REGRESSION" email listing all the triggered errors.

That's a trick to avoid flooding possibly large number of duplicate
error reports to LKML while avoiding hiding possibly non-duplicate
errors. It works well for normal branches, however looks less
effective for linus/master because here we have less clue about the
origin of errors.

So sorry -- this report is a noise. The fix could be to raise the
reporting threshold significantly for linus/master. It's also possible
some bug in the 0day-bot triggered this report unexpectedly.

Regards,
Fengguang
