SubjectBad file pattern in MAINTAINERS section 'NET_FAILOVER MODULE'
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.

net: Introduce net_failover driver

The net_failover driver provides an automated failover mechanism via APIs
to create and destroy a failover master netdev and manages a primary and
standby slave netdevs that get registered via the generic failover

The failover netdev acts a master device and controls 2 slave devices. The
original paravirtual interface gets registered as 'standby' slave netdev and
a passthru/vf device with the same MAC gets registered as 'primary' slave
netdev. Both 'standby' and 'failover' netdevs are associated with the same
'pci' device. The user accesses the network interface via 'failover' netdev.
The 'failover' netdev chooses 'primary' netdev as default for transmits when
it is available with link up and running.

This can be used by paravirtual drivers to enable an alternate low latency
datapath. It also enables hypervisor controlled live migration of a VM with
direct attached VF by failing over to the paravirtual datapath when the VF
is unplugged.
