Good point, well put. Although this situation is fairly unique to
Kconfig changes. In general I know I don't want to be spammed with
changes to all the files I've ever adapted though. If people wish to
act as reviewers, they should have a mention in MAINTAINERS for to pull information from:

R: Designated reviewer: FullName <address@domain>
These reviewers should be CCed on patches.

Or a new marker, I: Interested parties.
