As mentioned in the email, you want netdev, not linux-net...
we are currently thinking about changing the sign-off chain for the s390
network patches. Dave suggested that they should go through your hands.
If that is ok with you the new sign-off chain would be Frank Pavlic,
Jeff Garzik, Bitkeeper. This would solve two problems:
1) Frank would create the patches and since he knows much more about
linux networking then I do, hopefully the patches and the descriptions
will improve (and you can probably teach him to send the patches to
netdev instead of linux-net).
2) The patches won't just slip in anymore but get a real review.
That's OK with me. As an example, on the MIPS side of things, Ralf
sends most MIPS stuff straight to Linus, but I queue all his
drivers/net/* patches into my queue, and that gets submitted separately
(though just as rapidly) upstream with other net driver changes.
I certainly do recognize that qeth, in particular, is a network driver
unlike all others in the kernel ;-)
