Especially not so good for ARM stuff.

It'd be great if the ARM/embedded folk would spend
some effort improving the MAINTAINERS file pattern
coverage.

I wrote some scripts to compare files and git commits
to the individuals listed in MAINTAINERS as well as
the "first author" of files added vs email addresses
contained in the files. Some nominal MAINTAINERS
haven't had commits or signoffs in quite awhile and
could be likely be sifted out.

One possible improvement that get_maintainers could
add is to [optionally] CC the author of the first
commit when there's no listed maintainer.
