	basically, send your patches (try to split changes to small pieces) to
the alsa-devel mailing list. We review them and apply to our repository.
If you have many patches available, it would be better to create your
own kernel GIT tree with these patches and send a summary with the GIT
URL to the alsa-devel mailing list. We pull your patches after review.
