    Subject[RFQ] Rules for accepting patches into the linux-releases tree
    Anything else anyone can think of?  Any objections to any of these?
    I based them off of Linus's original list.

    Rules on what kind of patches are accepted, and what ones are not, into
    the "linux-release" tree.

    - It can not bigger than 100 lines, with context.
    - It must fix only one thing.
    - It must fix a real bug that bothers people (not a, "This could be a
    problem..." type thing.)
    - It must fix a problem that causes a build error (but not for things
    marked CONFIG_BROKEN), an oops, a hang, or a real security issue.
    - No "theoretical race condition" issues, unless an explanation of how
    the race can be exploited.
    - It can not contain any "trivial" fixes in it (spelling changes,
    whitespace cleanups, etc.)
    To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
    the body of a message to
