Sure, a stale entry is always bad.

It was a general question that I asked myself and didn't know an
answer to. I wasn't sure if adding someone to be a maintainer here to
a driver, which they haven't contributed to until now (at least based
on open source commits), is right or not, since this isn't a stale
entry in MAINTAINERS anyway.

An entry as R: would be okay normally IMO, as this makes sure
interested party is kept aware of the development in the area. An M:
entry somehow gives a higher level of authority to the person and
without any prior contributions, it feels tricky at least.

Anyway, I don't have any objection to the patch at least as it was
primarily developed by Intel engineers.
