Pilot report

pad.lv/1668093 - some debugging, and setting up a bisect run to spot the offending patch helping the reporter to get to upstream with better data.

pad.lv/1668557 - helped with performance analysis on IRC ending up identifying the fix in linux-stable and the tuning to get it fixed.

Since proper triaging is one of the patch pilots tasks as well I was looking at forgotten server bugs and eventually were triaging 100 (no fake, It really sums up to exactly hundred 3+3+1+10+5+19+22+6+5+16+10 from our triage queue) bugs that were still in "new" or had no update for quite a while.
Not so much pilot-sponsoring on these, but a lot of cases users could be helped directly by explaining their logs or guiding them to report to Debian/Upstream instead where it made more sense.
