The correct thing to do in that case is to reply to the original
patch and ask if it has been looked at. The usual way of doing this
is quoting the commit message and replying with a "Ping?" comment
to bump it back to the top of everyone's mail stacks.

But, again, 3 days is not a long time, people tend to be extremely
busy and might take a few days to get to reviewing non-critical
changes, and people may not even review patches during the merge
window. I'd suggest waiting a week before pinging a patch you've
sent if there's been no response....
