FWIW, I've been treating Alan as "PATA sub-maintainer", and tend to wait
for an Alan review of a PATA driver patch before applying it [unless
it's blindingly obvious or Bart chimes etc.].

But yes, overall, libata is certainly not SATA-only anymore, and
MAINTAINERS should reflect that.

Maybe a patch like the attached? (DaveM CC'd, since I modified the
old-IDE entry as well)
