>From my experience debugging kernel bugs requires an actuall human
interaction and there is only certain level of automation that can be
achieved. Don't take me wrong, automatic bisection and other bells and
whistles are a nice to have, but at the end of the day you usually need
someone to reproduce/look at the problem, possibly check the source
code, report a bug, etc. Hence it does not make much sense to have an
automated system without dedicated engineers assigned to review the test
