v2: Add bug ID to annotation file, update regression potential

== SRU Justification ==
VIMC is a virtual media controller that can emulate a real media device.
This is useful for automated tests, and development of multimedia frameworks.

== Fix ==
Enable VIMC as a module in B/D/E kernel configs.

== Test ==
Test kernels could be found here:

User has reported that the Eoan kernel works as expected.
I have also smoke tested the B/D kernel to make sure the VIMC modules
can be loaded properly.

== Regression Potential ==
Low, this patchset enables the VIMC module support, we might see some
bug reports against this module in the future. However the acutal impact
for a non-vimc user should be minimum.

There is a null pointer deference issue was found while inserting the
vimc module on some system (lp:1840028), it will be handled in that bug.
