Rajiv,

I've mentioned this at least once before: as maintainer of TPM, ideally,
what you should be doing is collecting the TPM patches, testing them in
your own tree, then pushing them to me with an indication of where they
need to end up (e.g. bugfixes for current linus vs. next), preferably via
git.

This is a significant part of what distinguishes maintainership from
simply developing or reviewing code.
