Len Brown has been a cpuidle maintainer for some time now. Moreover,
he's been taking patches, but Linus refused to pull his entire tree during the
last merge window (as you probably know). I honestly don't think this is
a good enough reason for replacing him as a cpuidle maintainer by force.

So, you should ask Len whether or not he's willing to pass the cpuidle
maintenance to someone else.

I know that Len hasn't been responsive recently, but I also know that he
_does_ respond to inquiries sent directly to him.
