    Al was in the To: list of all 7 patches.

    The maintainers (ext4/ext2/vfat) were also in the To: list.

    Trouble is, MAINTAINERS says this:

    MEMORY MANAGEMENT
    L: linux-mm@kvack.org
    W: http://www.linux-mm.org
    S: Maintained
    F: include/linux/mm.h
    F: mm/

    There's a list, but no specific contact person. That's why I had to start
    asking around about who actually pushes mm changes to Linus.

    As for Al Viro, he's still listed as the VFS maintainer; isn't he resting?
    I guess he did nominate you for the holding off of morons (like me). :)
