I hope that we can test linux-next on syzbot, as a tree for testing debug
printk() patches. People do not like sending debug printk() patches to
Linus's tree, while majority of bugs are found in Linus's tree.

We could automatically expire (and delete) reports found in linux-next from
the table at if the bug was not reproduced
for some time (e.g. one week or one month).
