Absolutely, in fact it's also possible to search in Lore for the
original thread if there's no Link: trailer in the commit.  Then
if subsequent bisections get run, the bot could reply to
say "still failing" with new kernel revisions until it's fixed
and then reply to confirm it is.  That's the plan, there's still
a bit of work to do to have it all automated though.

I believe earlycon is not set because it requires specific
options on different platforms, so there's some configuration
overhead involved here.  But it's a very good point that has been
raised in the past, I guess someone needs to take the time to
look into enabling it properly.  It shouldn't be that hard.

Thanks for the feedback and the quick fix!
