Anyway if you'd like to try, here are the steps. It'll auto download
the images and run QEMU.

        apt-get install lib32gcc-7-dev # or lib32gcc-6-dev
        git clone
        cd lkp-tests
        bin/lkp qemu -k <bzImage> job-script  # job-script is attached in this email

Note that even in our lkp-wsx03 machine, the chance of reproducing it
is only 3% (3 out of 100 boots).
