Well, no problem with that. 

Some maintainers just don't want to be buggered with such patches though, 
and I always take care of sending this queue to Linus only when all the 
trees which had conflict in linux-next are already in (and I do the 
conflict resolution myself), so this should be exactly zero additional 
work for subsystem maintainers.

But if you don't like this, I'll just start refusing all the trivial 
patches touching net/ and drivers/net/ and will redirect them your way.
