Of course I don't report issues with linux-hardened patch itself upstream.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but does that mean you first try to repro with vanilla and fall back to reporting to -hardened if it's not present in Linus' tree?
No, I meant build warnings, build failures or merge conflicts which can be directly attributed to linux-hardened patch. Honestly I don't remember real kernel bugs caused by linux-hardened patchset perhaps because it's rather tiny (100 times smaller than last grsecurity patch was) and not that invasive.
CONFIG_FORTIFY_SOURCE_STRICT_STRING can find bugs which aren't visible in vanillia but there are still upstream bugs not linux-hardened and can be reported upstream.
