Maybe you haven't noticed but 2.6.11 is actually in late -rc phase and
not open to such patches.

Just be patient. Patches posted to linuxppc-dev or linuxppc64-dev are
generally not lost as we have an automatic patch tracking system there.
It will be picked up at one point.

Also, it's a good habit, _especially_ if you re-post your patch, to
actually repost it properly re-based against the latest linux bk tree,
or at least the latest -rc, and with the proper format (which is -p1),
maintainers just don't have time to play at fixing patches.
