SubjectBad file pattern in MAINTAINERS section 'FUTEX SUBSYSTEM'
A file pattern line in this section of the MAINTAINERS file in linux-next
does not have a match in the linux source files.

This could occur because a matching filename was never added, was deleted
or renamed in some other commit.

The commits that added and if found renamed or removed the file pattern
are shown below.

Please fix this defect appropriately.

Add a MAINTAINERS block for the FUTEX SUBSYSTEM which includes the core
kernel code, include headers, testing code, and Documentation. Excludes
arch files, and higher level test code.

I added tglx and mingo as M as they have made the tip commits and peterz
and myself as R.

y2038: futex: Move compat implementation into futex.c

We are going to share the compat_sys_futex() handler between 64-bit
architectures and 32-bit architectures that need to deal with both 32-bit
and 64-bit time_t, and this is easier if both entry points are in the
same file.

In fact, most other system call handlers do the same thing these days, so
let's follow the trend here and merge all of futex_compat.c into futex.c.

In the process, a few minor changes have to be done to make sure everything
still makes sense: handle_futex_death() and futex_cmpxchg_enabled() become
local symbol, and the compat version of the fetch_robust_entry() function
gets renamed to compat_fetch_robust_entry() to avoid a symbol clash.

This is intended as a purely cosmetic patch, no behavior should
