Yeah send them here. Patches that are only touch powerpc should come
here, from where I merge them and then send them to Linus.

Anything that touches powerpc and some other code should at least be
CC'ed here.

If you're ever in doubt where to send a patch you can use:

  $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl --nogit-fallback --no-rolestats -f arch/powerpc/xmon/xmon.c
  Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh at kernel.crashing.org>
  Paul Mackerras <paulus at samba.org>
  Michael Ellerman <mpe at ellerman.id.au>
  linuxppc-dev at lists.ozlabs.org
  linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org

This isn't a bug fix so the distros won't pick it up automatically.
You'll have to ask them specifically to take a backport.
