Actually, my point was that you should specify in the commit log on the 
'Cc: stable at kernel.org' line to which kernel versions this patch 
applies. For example,

Cc: stable at kernel.org [2.6.37+]

It takes the guess work out for the stable maintainers and eases their 
workload. After all, you (the patch originator) know best which kernel 
versions you're affecting.
