Maybe. But a swift kick is always an effective to wake people up, even if the kick is not deserved...
OTOH, sending patches of any sort to Linus or A.M. if you are not one of their trusted senders is not very effective. Sending it to the security teams of Debian, Fedora or SuSE would probably have been a much faster path.
And, as you said, the tone of the email doesn't improve the chances of a better direct channel to Linus and A.M. any :-)
