How you deal with issues pointed out in the code you want to
be accepted is up to you: You could fix it locally and diverge from
Linux from the beginning, but the better route perhaps would be
to have the cloned from code fixed first (or at least in parallel).
Of course all that being said leaving aside the much more generic
question of whether to integrate the new functionality with the
existing emulation code instead.
