Good ways to host or distribute my patch for the Linux Kernel Mailing List

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have an approximately 1500 line patch for the Linux kernel - introducing a new file system. I have lots of problems with posting a patch straight to the kernel mailing list (gmail mangles the patch/it's very long/no easily apparent way to break the patch up except by hand etc) I don't want to use git format-patch as it generates a long, long series of patches, many of which are junk (eg debug printks and the like) and I am not at present able to suggest people pull off my git (I'm on the road and it's on a lap top without a fixed IP and so on). So, what is the best way to do this? I fear (HowTos)
