Microsoft contributes Hyper-V drivers to the kernel

I constantly read on LWN how contributors have to work with the kernel developer community to get code into the kernel, how the architecture should be discussed, how the code should be released little and often, and so on.
Can someone explain to me why Microsoft have apparently worked with only one kernel developer, albeit gk-h, and somehow managed to release 20K LOC into the kernel?
I'm not passing judgement on the work done, merely expressing surprise that a sizable code chunk can apparently appear in one lump, and that is apparently OK.
