Subject[PATCH 2/3] MAINTAINERS: Document new "K:" entry type
Date
K: is for keyword.  Syntax is perl extended regex.

Reorganized header documentation and indent the section
entry descriptions so that the first K: would not be
considered a regex to match by get_maintainer.pl

-Maintainers List (try to look for most precise areas first)
+Descriptions of section entries:
+
+ P: Person (obsolete)
+ M: Mail patches to: FullName <address@domain>
+ L: Mailing list that is relevant to this area
+ W: Web-page with status/info
+ T: SCM tree type and location. Type is one of: git, hg, quilt, stgit.
+ S: Status, one of the following:
+ Supported: Someone is actually paid to look after this.
+ Maintained: Someone actually looks after it.
+ Odd Fixes: It has a maintainer but they don't have time to do
+ much other than throw the odd patch in. See below..
+ Orphan: No current maintainer [but maybe you could take the
+ role as you write your new code].
+ Obsolete: Old code. Something tagged obsolete generally means
+ it has been replaced by a better system and you
+ should be using that.
+ F: Files and directories with wildcard patterns.
+ A trailing slash includes all files and subdirectory files.
+ F: drivers/net/ all files in and below drivers/net
+ F: drivers/net/* all files in drivers/net, but not below
+ F: */net/* all files in "any top level directory"/net
+ One pattern per line. Multiple F: lines acceptable.
+ X: Files and directories that are NOT maintained, same rules as F:
+ Files exclusions are tested before file matches.
+ Can be useful for excluding a specific subdirectory, for instance:
+ F: net/
+ X: net/ipv6/
+ matches all files in and below net excluding net/ipv6/
+ K: Keyword perl extended regex pattern to match content in a
+ patch or file. For instance:
+ K: of_get_profile
+ matches patches or files that contain "of_get_profile"
+ K: \b(printk|pr_(info|err))\b
+ matches patches or files that contain one or more of the words
+ printk, pr_info or pr_err
+ One regex pattern per line. Multiple K: lines acceptable.

Note: For the hard of thinking, this list is meant to remain in alphabetical
order. If you could add yourselves to it in alphabetical order that would be
so much easier [Ed]
