hi Dave, we recently find some unexpected failures for certain bisections,
with the fix, such failures are rerun to see whether we can successfully detect
bad commits, which i think this resulted in extra but late finding on old
commit on mainline. We will keep scan our bisection process to further improve
it to reduce this kind late reporting.
