it is my mistake. I should have added maintainer related to first patch
as you said.
I will resend this patchset to all of people related to it now.

Sorry, I have not sufficient explanation about history of patchset.

The below was written by Thomas Abraham and it was applied on
regulator.git repository.;a=commit;h=98d8618af37728f6e18e84110ddb99987b47dd12

But, this patch had occurred build break, it was reported by Stephen
Rothwell when build max8997-muic driver(drivers/misc/max8997-muic.c) and
then this patch was reverted by Mark Brown. You can check reverted patch
on below patch.;a=commit;h=82b719b11fd750188c125078ad6a6c0d23219dfb

Then, I posted patchset ,which is based on patch written by Thomas Abraham,
to add support irq domain for Max MAX8997 interrupts with bug fix.

I had to modify max8997-muic driver to avoid build break, But previously
I added extcon-max8997 driver and remove old max8997-muic

So, I suggested that this patchset should be applied on the git reposity
of Greg
to remove possible conflict issue when merged because old max8997-muic
driver(drivers/misc/max8997-muic.c) is existed on regulator.git of Mark

I am so sorry about obscure explanation of patchset history.
