It would have been much nicer to have something like a new incarnation
of kerneloops.org where you could by kernel version browse all sorts
of oops and look for similarities as well as simply search for oops in
things in particular subsystems.

Ideally I would like the oops decoded for lines and locations of
course and have it all done with the reporting tool.  Sticking a data
pool into a bugzilla directly only serves to bog down bugzilla and
make searches generally less useful.
