Default Amarok advice needed for patch not yet accepted upstream?


I'm a heavy Amarok user and I'm not sure if this is the right list or not.

Quick question... Is there a way to get a tiny patch considered, even if it hasn't yet been accepted upstream?

When I run Amarok, I get no visualizations because it says "Your System has no sample buffer support", but
as it turns out, it's checking for things that aren't even needed.* There is a patch upstream that disables this check and when I apply the patch and recompile,* my Amarok then works with the visualizations.

I'm running a Mobility X700 graphics card with the r300g (Gallium driver).*

See my bug report here: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=683707

And the patch for upstream here:* https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/104330/diff/?expand=1

Or maybe I just need to get upstream to look closer at considering that patch somehow?* I'm not sure how to do that.* It's not even my patch, but it works.

Thanks for the help!
