Hey, thank you so much for quoting Documentation/SubmittingPatches for me!

I've read it a long time ago but I now see I've completely
misunderstood how things work around here. How silly of me to assume
patches posted on LKML were fair game for anyone to review and that it
was appreciated given that there's chronic lack of reviewers for
pretty much everything. Thank you for setting me straight on the

I see you've been rather busy with important Kconfg work recently but
I can only hope you'll find the time to enforce "Acked-by" status on
LKML in the future as well!

P.S. There are other tags such as Tested-by and Reviewed-by which you
might also want to police a bit as well - I hear people without proper
testing or reviewing status are doing those things all the time!
