The dot releases are for backported bug-fixes only. This is a new 
functionality, so it won't be in 2.6.36. Same for 2.6.37, which is in 
the stabilization phase now, usually no new features here, too. In fact, 
the patch should be send to linux-usb soon, so it will be included in 
the merge-window for 2.6.38 (please, no discussion about this workflow 
on wine-devel ;))

No need to do this. Vijay just needs to

1) read Documentation/SubmittingPatches
2) consult the MAINTAINERS file (or use scripts/
    (you can set me on CC, too)
3) send the patch
4) wait for comments
5) if not applied goto 3

No magic involved :)
