If you look in the -staging tree, there are 17 "template/example"
patches in there to go off of :)

Basically, one patch per feature.  It sounds like the tuxonice is much
too big for this kind of thing.

Just respin your patches and post them to lkml for review.  You should
be able to set up your own tree for inclusion in linux-next if they are
ready to go in.

thanks,
