Actually, the best thing all around is to file a bug for the problem and then
put that bug number in a negative karma comment in bodhi.  Mostly because

"kernel can't see graphics card.  See bug #123456 for details and logs"

is much better than:

"kernel can't see graphics card.  I CAN'T HAZ MY INTERTUBEZ!"

in bodhi.  Bodhi is not a very good back-and-forth communication mechanism
at all.
