Developer reputation matters for somewhat controversial
patches being applied as well as non-controversial and
obviously correct patches being ignored.

Your reputation means most all of your patches fall into
the latter category.

Look up "wheat and chaff".

Your patches are mostly chaff.

You have produced many trivial patches that have caused
new defects.  That is simply unacceptable.  Especially
when you don't immediately fix the problems you cause.

If you would stop producing the trivial and instead
channel your efforts into actual bug fixing and logic
corrections and not just style modifications with no
code impact, your patch acceptance rate would increase.

Yes, your daily patch production rate would fall.
Likely every reader of LKML but you would be happy.

I have given you many suggestions for actual structural
improvements to kernel code.

You have ignored _all_ of them and I am unlikely to try
to interact with you any longer until your wheat:chaff
ratio changes.
