Ideally the ISA driver would go to the trash can ;) and having both on
separate directories doesn't strike me as being a problem. We have
i2c-algo-bit-based drivers in many places and this has never been a
problem.

That's a more valid argument. But then again, MAINTAINERS can be edited
again later as needed, with split entries getting merged or the other
way around. What matters is that MAINTAINERS reflects the reality of
who is doing what.

I'm not forcing anyone, and I would welcome alternative solutions.
