To add information to this bug just send mail to 294081@bugs.debian.org.
I think the output of the following commands would be helpful:

ofpath /dev/sda
ofpath /dev/sdb

you don't know these you can also tar /proc/device-tree and add this as
an attachment:

tar -czf device-tree.tar.gz /proc/device-tree
