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

* Maintained by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> and
* Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@pobox.com>
* Please ALWAYS copy linux-ide@vger.kernel.org
* on emails.

and in MAINTAINERS we also find

SERIAL ATA (SATA) SUBSYSTEM
M: Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@pobox.com>
L: linux-ide@vger.kernel.org
T: git
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jgarzik/libata-dev.git
S: Supported
F: drivers/ata/

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

Jeff
