Perhaps so. But the point of CI is more about ensuring you don't break
existing stuff and less about testing the stuff you submit.

Ideally we should test the patches that get pushed and push the patches
that were posted on the list. For transparency, our CI replies with
results to the series that were posted on the (intel-gfx) mailing list,
and we add a Link: tag back to the patches in the commit message. They
all tie in together.

Trybot tests patches that were posted to it privately, and if you apply
the patches that were tested by trybot, you apply patches that weren't
posted on the list. Or you apply patches that weren't tested.

I'd prefer the patches were posted both for testing and pushing.
