    Subject[PATCH 4/5] firewire, ieee1394: update MAINTAINERS entries
    Ben and Kristian have not been involved in maintenance of the IEEE 1394
    drivers for quite some time; submitters are not required to Cc them on

    The domain has been dead for a while and is no longer
    under control of a Linux developer. The current web site of the
    Linux 1394 project is

    The classic drivers/ieee1394/ stack is now obsolete from the development
    point of view, though still a useful alternative in productive use. But
    nobody should attempt to submit style cleanup patches for it or to
    develop new drivers on top of this stack, hence mark its MAINTAINERS
    entry as Obsolete.

    drivers/ieee1394/raw1394*, like the rest of the old stack, does not
    receive bigger code changes anymore, hence shrink the MAINTAINERS
    database a bit by dropping raw1394's special entry. If something
    important and urgent is going to come up for raw1394, I will make sure
    that Dan will be notified of it besides via linux1394-devel.
