That just isn't going to happen, sorry.

However, *please* be aware of the linux-patches@vger.rutgers.edu
mailing list; it gets automailed from kernel.org on release of a new
patch.

(There is a size limit imposed by the vger.rutgers.edu sysadmin. If
it becomes too onerous, please let him know so it can be adjusted.)
