If you already have a copyright assignment on file, then just post the
patch to along with an appropriate ChangeLog

If you don't have an assignment you'll probably need to do one (or
possibly a copyright disclaimer, if the patch isn't too large).  Send

*Very* small changes probably don't need an assignment.
