get_maintainer is pretty clear on it, pointing out all maintainers up the chain.

This is normally not a problem when the maintainer sends code on up
the subsystem tree (i.e. to Greg in the case of serial patches). What
made me want an ack in this case is because the serial patches came in
for the arm-soc tree.
