Hi Grant.

I think cc:ing lkml should be the default for patches.

Having a few selected sections have lkml entries
might make people think that a section that doesn't
specifically mention lkml therefore wouldn't need to
a cc: to lkml.

Perhaps MAINTAINERS should mention that its preface
as well as having it in Documentation/SubmittingPatches?
