Yeah, but get_maintainer.pl outputs 33 maintainer addresses, plus 1
reviewer plus 14 mailing lists, so to avoid rejects because of too
many recipients I went with the advice in  and sent each patch to
their maintainers and list(s) and the cover letter to all lists. Also
sent the whole series to lakml to make sure that it's at least indexed
Any advice on what to do with series that span so many subsystems?
