In my opinion, the point is not really about privacy.  Although, I 
understand you concern.

As a kernel developer, the source code you will write will be subject to 
copyright matters and, if you want to contribute, you will have to give 
your agreement to this.
This is only possible using your real name.

I am inviting you to read: Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst 
in this regard.

Of course, as long as you do not submit source code, it does not really 
matter.  It may be more a question of "consistency".
