Just the usual rules as per MAINTAINERS:
To: Thomas Gleixner <tglx(a)linutronix.de>
Ingo Molnar <mingo(a)redhat.com>
"H. Peter Anvin" <hpa(a)zytor.com>
CC: x86(a)kernel.org, lkml
CC: roland(a)redhat.com, kmcmartin(a)redhat.com
I always go look at vger's lists for x86 instead of MAINTAINERS. *head-desk*
Yeah, well, it's taken us several cycles to get around to
bothering to try.
At any rate, IMHO a series/branch of patches proposed upstream is the thing
we'll want to share. Even if it's not all (or any) merged upstream soon
(or ever), that process will yield cleaned-up and granular patches that are
better to maintain (and to share across distros) as well as being better to
merge if the NAKers relent.
