    The I²C list would be the best place to send such a patch. You could
    also copy it to the linux-embedded list if it's likely to be of interest
    to a reasonable proportion of "embedded" developers, but that wouldn't
    be the primary route into Linus' tree for most things.

    I can't really see any way to make that clear in the MAINTAINERS file
    that wouldn't be clumsy and just as confusing -- I think it'll work out
    just fine by itself. Do you have a concrete proposal?
