It's nobody's job to do anything. This a collaborative effort and in a
collaborative effort everbody chimes in to do different things.
It's not Jeff's patches, they are our patches, they are part of the project.
And it's not unusual for multiple people working on a patch series; one person
doing most of the work, another adding tests, another cleaning updocumentation.
It's also no unheard of from a person picking up a patch series somebody else
stopped working on.
If a patch series is event considered to be merged upstream, that means it
doesn't just benefit the person sending it (e.g. me), it benefits all Git
So "my" patches where by the project and for the project.

Torvalds, agreed. Did you?
