Why didn't you tell me an explicit Cc is important for you?

I'll resend my pending batch with a Cc to you.


That only leaves the question why bugfixes are directly applied by Linux
when they come from other people, but not when they come from me. Is
there also a Cc required? But my patch for the x86 userspace headers
fuckup was Cc'ed to Linus (and I can't send it to -stable before it is
in Linus' tree).

Is the correct path for bug fixes to go through the maintainer or to go
directly through Linus? And in the latter case, what was wrong with my
patches?
