Hi Amit,

 Some of these bugs were raised with motive "1 bug per board" which is not
valid now, so I guess it'll be good to merge them and track a single bug(as
you mentioned), I would like to confirm same with Zach as well.

 And linking them to specific LT's can be done if LT's have something to
contribute to fix the bug.(Like Andy mentioned) otherwise it stays open at
"Linaro-Android" desk.
