Well, ideally there is a main author/maintainer for a driver
who decides what to do with a patch. Or at least someone
else would test it so we know it doesn't break anything.
But we only reject patches if they have problems, if no
problems are reported the patch is accepted.

Small, obviously correct (tm) fixes don't have to be
discussed on the list.
