I think that patches coming from experimented kernel developers
should always include a study of bug origin.

Otherwise, both maintainer and stable teams have to figure it, and
they sometime lack the time or context.

Plus it's good to CC patch author and reviewers so that he can learn of
its mistakes, and Ack your work as well.

Thanks
