    I really doubt this will work, look at the patches in some distros for
    examples of why. I'm having a hard enough time with the LTSI project in
    conveying that "Yes, you can send patches to me for merging into the
    LSTI kernel, you still have to justify it, and work to get the patches
    then upstream, I'm not going to do your work for you."

    Having a random tree where these patches show up help no one except the
    original developer so that they can fire-and-forget, which is not what
    you want, unless you wish to take on the "get it cleaned up and merged
    upstream" task yourself, which you really don't want to.

    good luck,

    greg k-h
