I understand that the CGL group feels there are gaps, and has tried to
document them, that's fine.  My point being where are those kernel
patches that implement those gaps, and why are they not being submitted
to the main kernel.org tree for inclusion for everyone to use?

Setting up a separate tree does no one any good, unless you want to
never get the code merged...

There are lots of public git hosting services availble, that's not the
issue here.  The issue is where is the code you are saying is somehow
not included into the main kernel tree, and why is it not being
submitted there?
