Surely the problem is that email is a relatively blunt tool to track bugs and fixes? Something web-based that lets you track the bug over time, relate it to duplicates, attach patches, make comments, etc, would seem a better idea - by having subsystem tags such as SCSI you could also enable smaller groups of developers to focus on their area. Also, maybe the kernel needs bug triage people who simply prioritise and tag bugs so they find their way to the right developer community.
