Every two weeks the Ubuntu Kernel Team have special Kernel Bug days where we focus our attention on specific kernel bug categories. The desire is to attack a bunch of bugs that need some more love and attention - there are an awful lot of bugs and they all take time and effort to resolve.
The good news is that we also like participation from community members to help triage and help fix bugs. Sometimes you may have the same hardware or know of a fix to a specific kernel, hardware or BIOS related bug and thus you may be able to help solve a few of those lingering kernel bugs!
