I know, it's not related to your patch but linux patches doesn't follow the new
naming convention here.

Do we want to keep the "linux-" prefix since linux is not really a package or
get rid of it ?

It would be convenient to use linux patches generated by git format-patch
command like for other packages.

Best regards,
