Oh yes, they sound like they certainly would be appreciated!

Personally, I've found that I like doing it like this:

  - create a dedicated branch for the new stuff
  - commit your changes
  - when you have something to show us, do 'git format-patch' and post the
    patch(es) here
  - having a branch lets you easily do commit --amend to fix things after
    review and yet still pulland rebase etc

Once your patch goes into mainline you can just delete your branch.
