cpufreq (at least) does it this way.  I don't know how well it is turning
out in practice.

It's useful if the initial report makes it clear (ie; to me) that the report
has already gone to a mailing list so I don't go and forward a duplicate.

But there are so few arm reports in bugzilla that this is all rather moot.
