Send them to the Ubuntu Kernel mailing list and explain that they are on
their way upstream.  As for sending them upstream, submit the audio patch to
the ALSA hg mailing list and the the HID patch to the normal kernel mailing

If they end up saying it's too late to fit into l-u-m even though they are
such simple patches, ask if linux-backport-modules would be a possibility.
