  first, if they're truly mentors, they should check the patch
themselves and catch the error. otherwise, they're not really doing
their job as "mentors."

  second, you need to self-examine what you failed to do properly to
have sent in a bad patch.

  i doubt you've done any real harm; the linux kernel has lots of
checking up the hierarchy so that a truly damaging patch is rarely
going to get into the source tree.
