Ah, no, please report bugs, the earlier the better.  We need to get
bugfixes into mainline ASAP to make sure that .37 is a useful release,
at least within its expected range of functionality.  (Linus is
generally unhappy about non-regression bugfixes beyond about -rc3 -
bugfixes for a new feature indicate that the feature wasn't ready for
upstream and should simply be disabled or reverted for that release.)
