I'm sorry to interject here, but the issue was reported on the Bugzilla on February 2nd


In the interest of better communication, if the need arises again, how
should bugs in the RC kernels be reported so they (1) are spotted by
the right maintainers and (2) not backported even though they were
reported as causing breaking changes?

Sadly our bugzilla is rarely used, even though the information in that
particular bug report is perfect.

Maybe pinging LKML and stable@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx would be enough, specially
if you know that it's a stable commit that caused the regression.
