    There's no need for a vote. Users already vote for a maintainer when
    they decide to use a paticular kernel tree.

    No user is forced to follow a particular maintainer. And anyone can step
    up and declare that they are also offering a maintained tree.

    And this situation is already self correcting; if no users follow, it's
    unlikely that a maintainer will continue doing the required work. And
    if a maintainer doesn't do a satisfactory job, it's very unlikely many
    people will choose to use that tree.
