How about a distro-provided bisection facility?

Certainly this is possible (to have people at the distros do the bisection), and in fact it's already being done, but many kernel bugs that escape into released kernels aren't noticed because they only affect users with very specific hardware. And these, I think, are exactly the cases where kernel developers ask the end user to bisect it, because they have no way on their end to make progress.
