As documented in submitting-patches.rst please send patches to the

workflow is that people apply patches from their inboxes, if they aren't
copied they are likely to not see the patch at all and it is much more
difficult to apply patches.

If you want me to review something you'l need to submit it; that patch
was from 2013 so predates me maintaining the subsystem so I've never
seen a copy.

My general instinct with this stuff is that it's likely to be more
sensible to describe this with GPIO chip selects, the state of
controller chip selects is such that a lot of devices use them anyway
even when the controller supports native chip selects as the controller
chip selects often suffer from unfortunate limitations that mean they're
not actually useful.
