argh, that's a process problem.

When those patches turn up in linux-next, I will assume that someone merged
them into a git tree and I will drop them.

You now own the sole copy.  If you drop them, they are lost.  If you don't
send them to anyone, you own them forever.

So..  what to do about this?  I think the only solution is for you to go
into akpm mode and start desperately trying to entice someone into merging
the patch.
