IMO this is very incorrect -- the high volume submitters have never
posted their stuff to lkml when sending to Linus. BK did not change
this at all. Andrew is the notable exception. [1]

that won't work for many reasons... lots of uninteresting patches
posted to lkml, security patches should go out-of-band, etc. Do you
_really_ want to see boring and huge arch merges posted to lkml? Ug. :)

[1] One might argue that Ingo is another exception, but I don't count
him among the high-volume submitters. This is not intended to diminish
him, either: Ingo probably has one of the highest "important/trivial"
patch ratios of anybody in the kernel...
