Dammit Marc, you just blew it!  That was going to be the next hurdle we
threw up in getting those patches accepted into the kernel tree as the
kernel developers are not allowed to accept contributions from people
not using their legal name.

Oh, and for those that don't realize it, almost 2 thousand developers
figured out how to contribute to the kernel last year, it's not a hard
thing to do.  So anyone who does complain about it, obviously is doing
something wrong on their end...
