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 ;)
