Use the tool, scripts/ on your patch and it will
identify the subsystem and mailing list where you need to send your
change to.

If you work off of the linux-next branch, that is a good start as that
contains a sum of all kernel maintainer's tree, as the
Documentation/process/ document explains, and is the easiest to work off
of to start with.

Hope this helps,
