Hi Ted,

If I'm not wrong, below is my understanding ..

Patches marked for stable are automatically pulled-in by maintainers of
stable trees when those patches get merged and tagged in linus's tree.
This is done by scripts which search "CC: <stable at vger.kernel.org> # <tag>"
in commit log of all patches. Thus "CC: <stable at vger.kernel.org> # 3.13.x+"
here is like a marker for scripts. In practice, you should not directly send
your patch to "stable at vger.kernel.org" mail-list, unless maintainer does so.

So, while sending stable patches use following command to avoid below error
'git send-email ---suppress-cc=bodycc'

Also refer:
[2] Documentation/stable_kernel_rules.txt.

with regards, pekon
