I have a few bits of code in mainline for an arachaic system - not many users or testers. Subsystem maintainers are generally quite strict about things like coding style but, in my view, often miss some quite big bugs in drivers they ACK. I'm all in favour of early merging but I think there are a lot of device drivers out there where the number of users might be quite literally counted on one hand. Still, it's fun. Nobody pays me for it and probably never will.
