"Seniority" (whatever you mean by that) has got nothing to do with it.
I'll accept any child's patch if it is good. Discussing code on LKML is
a purely technically thing, only if two patches are technically equivalent,
the maintainer's personal taste will decide. And if it makes you feel better:
My patches (and those of any other developer) are also sometimes rejected
because they are not to some other maintainer's taste.
