Reading the above it occurs to me you are aiming for "flag-day patches".
Try to keep in sync with main-line instead is a *much* better approach.
If you are having troubles getting your patches applied, maybe it's
due to the size anyway.
See how Martin does it for S390 for example. 5-20 paches each 3 weeks in
average. And he gets good feedback - also from others than hch.
Developing everything in vacuum is the wrong approach, and does not
give you any feedback from the community - or at least you get it
only indirect with patches that hch creates.
