I think that's because while reporting "suspicious RCU usage" kernel hit:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000074

and the rest of the report is actually about the NULL deref.

syzkaller hits too many crashes at the same time. And it's a problem
for us. We get reports with corrupted/intermixed titles,
corrupted/intermixed bodies, reports with same titles but about
different bugs, etc.
