Those @kernel-bugs email addresses should not be a problem:

AFAIK, USB bugs go to,
SCSI bugs go to

netdev didn't want bugs sent there automatically IIRC, so a
human takes care of doing that if warranted.

Andrew Morton takes MM bugs and Cc:s them to linux-mm mailing list
and then asks for discussion to continue on the mailing list.

We could/should probably see if we can add more project-specific
mailing lists to the automatic reporting -- but probably not LKML.

Otherwise some bug reports might never be heard about.
