I assumed Vincent and Benjamin deliberately added a new entry because they
want to be maintainers of this driver (which I think probably makes sense given
that the display IP is quite complicated).
Not seeing these patches on kernel@xxxxxxxxxxx list though has caught me out,
especially recent changes applied to the firmware loading mechanism in drm/sti which
also need similar changes in c8sectpfe and fdma drivers.
