A report from pgCon 2013
Yet you also admit you are too lazy to write-up an academic paper on what you've discovered from real-world Linux implementation, which would be the accepted way of interacting with academic people.
I see a failure on both sides here.
Realtime Linux: academia v. reality

Writing a publication-quality academic paper is a rather more specialized skill than writing an e-mail fit to be sent to LKML. As such, it is the academics who can more reasonably be asked to make the extra effort here.

In both cases if you are only proposing an incremental idea/patch, it's fairly easy to get that looked at and considered.
However if you are planning something drastic, expect months to years of "peer review" (be it by entrenched professors or else just no-nonsense kernel devs).
The process can be long and arbitrary, and it turns off enough people that they don't bother trying. And yes, you have to fight politics, on both ends, and outsiders are treated with suspicion at first.
