I think the reasoning is the same, to avoid confusion and avoid stepping
on each other toes it is best to have a single gatekeeper (still
multiple maintainer entries to keep patches reviewed correctly), if no
one complains I will do that and a) provide ACKs (I will definitely
require and request Hanjun and Sudeep ones too appropriately on a per
patch basis) and b) send you pull requests.
Having a maintainer per file would be farcical, I really do not
expect that amount of traffic for drivers/acpi/arm64 therefore I
really doubt there is any risk of me slowing things down.
Does this sound reasonable ? Comments/complaints welcome, please
