[PATCH] remove redundant info from SubmittingPatches

Since the Trivial Patch Monkey is mentioned both in steps 4.  and 5., I
removed it from step4 (Select e-mail destination), since it should go under
'Select your CC list'.

For small patches you may want to CC the Trivial Patch Monkey set up by Rusty Russell; which collects "trivial"
patches. Trivial patches must qualify for one of the following rules:
Spelling fixes in documentation
Spelling fixes which could break grep(1).
Warning fixes (cluttering with useless warnings is bad)
Compilation fixes (only if they are actually correct)
Runtime fixes (only if they actually fix things)
Removing use of deprecated functions/macros (eg. check_region).
Contact detail and documentation fixes
Non-portable code replaced by portable code (even in arch-specific,
since people copy, as long as it's trivial)
Any fix by the author/maintainer of the file. (ie. patch monkey
in re-transmission mode)
5) Select your CC (e-mail carbon copy) list.
