As Anders also said: Make it as concrete as possible. List concrete
changes and explain their motivations and benefits. Ideally, even
provide RFC patches (unless the effort is so huge that waiting for first
comments is more appropriate). Also, I would consider putting LKML on CC
when the kernel ABI is affected - to underline that this is targeting
the staging work.
