The thing I hate is that this slows down the other mailing lists. It
doesn't just affect LKML. It affects *all* lists. Even the ones that just
get a dozen emails a day. But the emails that do come, are important.

Perhaps another answer is to dedicate the LKML emails to their own servers,
and let the other mailing lists run separately such that the patch bombs to
LKML do not affect any of the other lists.

That would be an acceptable solution for me ;-)
