The proper policy is:
*) send it to UML maintainers (i.e. Jeff Dike and me) and this mailing list.
Experienced developers also CC LKML (i.e. linux-kernel@...) but
newcomers should let us filter your ideas - LKML is not very friendly for
newcomers if they don't follow the rules (but general ones and
*) make sure to generate an unified diff patch, with -p to show c functions
names for increased readability (like diff -Npur a/ b/), possibly which
applies with -p1 (we'll handle failures about -p1, probably not about the
*) (possibly) read LKML faq for patch submission for general rules. I suggest
attaching it with 7-bit encoding (rather than quoted-printable) and
text/plain MIME type.
Please don't include it in the mail since it only works with text-based MUAs,
and with very few (if any) graphical MUAs with special care. To do that we
use special tools in fact.
Inform me of my mistakes, so I can keep imitating Homer Simpson's "Doh!".
