Ayush, that is NOT how the review process in the kernel community works.

The process is You send a patch to a mailing list for review, reviewers 
review and send back emails with comments. Then, you rework and send out a 
new patch and it repeats. That is the process.

For mentees, we have the linux-kernel-mentees mailing list, so that you 
can send patches to reviewers that are willing to provide dedicated 
feedback to mentees.
