I'd say that when it is just a "fixme" patch (like MAXPATHLEN,
PATH_MAX), we generally don't take the time to forward, there are too
many of them :)
When it is really "porting" software (like Xorg driver for
keyboard/mouse), we have to work with upstream for working out the best
method anyway, so it ends up in upstream.
