This patch looks sane, correct, and properly formatted. All in all,
a good first patch. :)

Feel free to add this when you submit it:

Acked-by: Valdis Kletnieks <>

As far as where to send it?

Looking at the output of for those two files, I'd use:

To: Arnd Bergmann <>, Andrew Morton <>

(Arnd as maintainer, Andrew because he's well-known as having a soft spot for
trivial patches, and the three lists because they're relevant lists.  I skipped all the
BPF people because although they've done commits to those files, this isn't
really BPF related.)
