I didn't know about X-Patchwork-Hint; thanks, I'll start using it for
future backports and "here's what I'm sending upstream" messages.

To be honest, that's 99% of what I need.  The project-specific hints
would be nice, but mainly so that I can cc LKML, and tell the LKML
patchwork queue to ignore patches that I'm tracking in the ext4 patch

(Everyone would have to do this before the LKML specific patchwork
queue would be useful for finding patches that haven't been picked up
by a subtree maintainer; in fact, I haven't looked at the LKML
specific patchwork queue in a long time.  Is it still being fed?  I
imagine it gets pretty bloated unless someone is spending a lot of
time actively grooming it....)
