Patch submission on kernel.org
Today, I had the “pleasure” to submit a patch to kernel.org (not the kernel list, but one of the InfiniBand lists there). Sadly, I found out, that they are really restrictive about the style of the mail, patch, etc, see the FAQ of the kernel list. But there is a nice tutorial to avoid most of the pitfalls.
If someone of you has the same task, then this how-to is a good starting point.
