No, it's extremely unlikely that bug fixing patches get silently
rejected by being ignored. Most probably the time of your submission is
unfortunate, being at the time when submissions are not merged.
I am in same situation with a couple of patches. I asked Mauro yesterday
on IRC and he replied:

I don't handle submissions during 3 weeks, during the merge window
one week before, and the two weeks after that
except when it is a bug that would affect the merge window
(end of quote)

So unless you make it clear about which "release branches" are affected,
your submission is to be delayed - possibly up to 6 weeks or so.

I was suggested to add tags Fixes: buggy-commit-id and
