Rik van Riel has put up a guide to getting code merged into the kernel
on the kernelnewbies.org site. "However, some people react badly to the opinions and suggestions of the people who took hours out of their time to review their code. Some people even flame them to a crisp. Once you have turned enough of the linux-kernel 'top dogs' against you, it will become extremely hard to get your code merged. If only because nobody will take the time again to review the next iteration of your code.
