Is this 2.6.31 or 32 material?

That's fine.

Should I put just you as the contact, or add the mailing list as well?

What I tell everyone: all patches/commits in the tree/series must
have been:

posted to a relevant mailing list
unit tested
destined for the next merge window (or the current release)

*before* they are included. The linux-next tree is for integration
testing and to lower the impact of conflicts between subsystems in the
next merge window.

Basically, this should be just what you would send to Linus (or ask him
to fetch). It is allowed to be rebased if you deem it necessary.
