Your exclusion list is:

+X: drivers/char/agp/
+X: drivers/char/hw_random/
+X: drivers/char/ipmi/
+X: drivers/char/random.c
+X: drivers/char/tpm/

But the current subdirectories of drivers/char are:

drivers/char/agp
drivers/char/hw_random
drivers/char/ipmi
drivers/char/mwave
drivers/char/pcmcia
drivers/char/tpm
drivers/char/tpm/eventlog
drivers/char/tpm/st33zp24
drivers/char/xilinx_hwicap
drivers/char/xillybus

do you want to specifically maintain any of them?

Wouldn't it be easier to add a single subdirectory exclusion
and add specific inclusions for subdirectories you actually
do want to maintain>


X: drivers/char/*/
F: drivers/char/<whatever>
