I suppose the kernel is a single component only from a fairly narrow
user centric view. Sure, it would be nice, from a user perspective, to
have a single bug tracker for everything. But behind the scenes, the
kernel development community is so broad and fragmented it's basically
impossible to get people to agree on a tracker that would suit everyone
and that everyone would use. Furthermore, there are users that insist on
reporting bugs on their own terms anyway, refusing to sign up to any

Arguably "the single bug tracker" most users should report their kernel
problems for triage first is their distro bug tracker.

Works for me, ymmv.
