You certainly don't need permission to raise the issue where you think
might be helpful. But, is LKML a particularly good place? This issue
isn't going to affect kernel developers; my understanding is that the
kernel still needs frame pointers, but whether or not it does, the
kernel people will put the right option in their Makefiles. This is
really a question for userspace developers, with their uncountably vast
number of applications and libraries.
