Re: 1: "... unfortunately, we don't learn whether this is actually possible or not..." Pardon me, it doesn't matter if it could be exploited or not, the one doing the checking that it is not a real vulnerability could make a mistake, or a later change could make it exploitable. Better check.
Re: 2: The kernel is the most privileged piece of software on the machine, mistakes that would be a minor annoyance elsewhere are very serious and potentially disastrous here. Nothing particular to disclose...
