Few questions, some silly, some not that silly:
* What is SRU?
* What are "OMG kitten killer bugs" ? :)
* Can a requirement be that patches must first have an equivalent
upstream SHA1 sum on the stable kernel and mention that in the commit
log entry? If the concerns is that the patches may take a while to
trickle down the stable kernels then how about volunteering someone to
join the stable kernel patch review cycle and help with that process?
* If for whatever reason the above is not possible ensure that at
least the patch has been posted and refer to URL for the patch in the
commit log entry.
