Well, you don't really have to review every single patch touching areas
that you're just interested in (and if you're maintaining those drivers
please document it in MAINTAINERS file, thanks).

The problem is that in case you're not entirely correct, which is much
more likely when doing things 'at speed', you're will be wasting time
for everybody (not that I really care that much about others' time but
I do care about mine).
