I need a real person here, having aliases as maintainers results in a
lack of accountability :(

Why not just do these fixups on your own right now and submit it to the
"real" part of the kernel? That should take what, a day or so max?

Just sending stuff to staging because you don't want to do coding style
cleanups feels very odd. It takes much more work and energy to do it
this way than to just do it right the first time and get it merged to
the networking subsystem, right?

So why do you want to send it to staging?
