If I see a ppc patch I will:
- merge it into -mm, add you guys to the cc on the mm-commits email.
- stage the patch after git-powerpc.patch in the -mm lineup.
- if I see the patch appear in git-powerpc.patch, I just drop it. I sync
with the git trees maybe twice per day.
- time passes
- if it still hasn't been merged into git-powerpc, I start spamming you
with the patch.
So no, you don't need to grep -mm and I won't bypass the git-powerpc tree
and the patch won't get lost. All you need to do is to either merge or
nack the patch at some stage.
Easy as pie ;)
