    At the top of drivers/ata/sata_svw.c, we find:

    * Maintained by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <> and
    * Jeff Garzik <>
    * Please ALWAYS copy
    * on emails.

    and in MAINTAINERS we also find

    M: Jeff Garzik <>
    T: git
    S: Supported
    F: drivers/ata/

    None of these addresses, nor LKML, were copied. Please do so in the future.
