Sorry, been a bit distracted...when we were working on this I was more
focused on the text than the location.  My own feeling is that
Documentation/process is a better place for this - that's where we tell
the world how to work with the kernel community, after all.  I'm not
going to dig in my heels and fight about it, but that's my sense.

Otherwise, it kind of seems like this is ready to go in. I'd like to
apply it before the merge window; lemme know where you want it in the
end and we can get it done.
