How would I go ahead to send a patch for the latest -rc kernel?


* What tree to diff against? (Linus'?)
* To which list do I send the patch?

Background: I've contributed a new network driver that is now in 3.13-rc1. I
would like to fix it so that it behaves better with iproute. Strictly speaking
this isn't a bug fix, but the driver is going to be quite useless without
iproute support, and that won't be there until this fix is in the kernel.
