-u is your friend).
NOTE: This means I'll only take whitespace/indentation fixes from
the author or maintainer.
I actually read the patches, so don't expect real-time response.
The patch will not be forwarded to anyone until a new
kernel has been released after I receive the patch,
*unless* noone else is sent the patch. So if you cc: the
trivial patch monkey, it'll only be forwarded from there
if it doesn't make the next kernel.
The first time the patch is forwarded, it will be sent
to the author and/or maintainer. If they say they've
included it in their tree, no more forwards will occur
(modulo some timeout eventually). If they NAK it, the
patch will be closed. Otherwise, the patch will be sent
directly to Linus or Marcelo on future forwards (the
maintainer will still be cc'd).
