Umm - that was my point - though I did not make it explicitly.

Either there is a policy change, and it is decided to allow such
dual-licenced code in the repo, or your code does not get checked in,
as it does not have a compatible licence.

If Linus takes the view that he does not wish to allow this - and the
project is not forked - you actually have to do the above.

Sure - you have the right to licence code you write any way you choose.
Linus (and the people involved in maintaining the kernel) have the
to not accept your code under that licence.
