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 ;-)
