We had another pull request issue today, about a situation that I
definitely know you've written about in the past, because I linked to
lwn in my email:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=wiKoePP_9CM0fn_Vv1bYom7iB5N=ULaLLz7yOST3K+k5g@mail.gmail.com/

and while I suspect people don't actually read documentation
(_particularly_ maintainers that have already been around for a long
time but still do this), maybe that part could be in the same
documentation?
