Agreed there are certainly many situations where you need to clone the
bug and have separate bugs for each branch, especially, as you note
for kernel bugs.  I was simply arguing that it shouldn't be an
absolute hard requirement to create a new bug in every instance when a
bug is fixed in more than one branch.
