I think the right process is to go through the linuxppc[64]-dev list(s)
first, maybe CC lkml when it's not strictly arch gore, and then hop from
there to -git. We also have a nice patch tracking system scanning those
lists, I suppose I need to fix my own habits of bypassing all of that
stuff :)

I think going through the -git tree always makes sense and I've doing
doing that for my own production, I'll route patches that I'm acking
that way too from now on.

I'm keeping the liberty of bombing you & linus directly when I think
it's an important bug fix late in the rc cycle though :)
