Parent article: Is the kernel development process broken?
Ubuntu is experimentally doing that sort of shallow, wide ranging testing:
I now have a small app that asks a few questions about how well the automatic config went, did the sound work out of the box, etc... and then sends that data plus a bunch of logs and hald reports upstream.
If ever an user is left in the cold with a kernel upgrade, a bit of datamining will make sure the problem is identified and fixed, without actually having to read all the logs.
