Sorry for replying late, I had accidentally ignored the entire thread.

My feeling is that it would be best for Ohad to send these directly
to Linus, since it's basically a standalone subsystem and he's listed
as the maintainer (well, after this series at least).

I'm also fine with any of the other paths like

ohad->GregKH->torvalds
ohad->arnd->torvalds
ohad->tmlind->torvalds
ohad->tmlind->arnd->torvalds

Arnd
