Fair enough!

But of course it is possible! For example, syzkaller might find a bug
that was already fixed, and then before notifying me about the bug, you
see the fix. For example, by failing to reproduce a mainline bug on -rcu.

Not that I particularly want to be auto-spammed about bugs that I have
already fixed, mind you! ;-)

Thanx, Paul
