Seriously?  How can the commit in question (limited to arch/tile/kernel/kgdb.c)
possibly affect a bug that manages to produce a crash report with
RSP: 0018:ffffffff82e03eb8  EFLAGS: 00000282

in it?  Unless something very odd has happened to tile, this crash has
been observed on 64bit x86; the names of registers alone are enough
to be certain of that.

And the binaries produced by an x86 build should not be affected by any
changes in arch/tile; not unless something is very wrong with the build
system.  It's not even that this commit has fixed an earlier bug that
used to mask the one manifested here - it really should have had zero
impact on x86 builds, period.

So I'm sorry, but I'm calling bullshit.  Something's quite wrong with
the bot - either its build system or the bisection process.

The acid test would be: does reverting that commit make the problem go away?

See, for example, https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=203935

This is done as part of any bisection by definition, right? The test
was done on the previous commit (effectively this one reverted) and no
crash was observed. Otherwise bisection would have been pointed to a
different commit.

Agree that's what bisecting does. What I had in mind was to make a patch to
remove the identified commit, and apply that to the most recent revision
possible. Then see if that makes the problem go away.

However when I look at my clone of
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux.git and compare
77ef8f5177 with the previous commit a7d1357664, "git diff --stat" shows

> 745 files changed, 8192 insertions(+), 15408 deletions(-)

The last few lines from a grep of "arch" are:

Enough said?

I wonder in what percent of cases:
1. It gives signal different from reverting the commit in place.
2. The revert can be cleanly applied to head.
3. The revert does not introduce other bugs.

For this to be worth doing, all these 3 should be reasonably high. I
can imagine 3 may be high (?), but I am not sure about 1 and 2.

The whole arch/tile directory no longer exists, so the patch cannot be applied.
If I had realised that earlier, I would not have posted at all.
Sorry for the noise.
