Well, no, this was for trusted keys, which is the part of the key
infrastructure that goes via the TPM: The KEYS-TRUSTED part in the
MAINTAINERs file. There's still KEYS-ENCRYPTED, KEYS/KEYRING and
ASYMETRIC KEYS, which don't use the TPM.
However, I've no objection to consolidating the lot under a larger set
of maintainers ... I recently agreed to look at the asymmetric key TPM
patch because it's my area, but it also strays over into crypto,
keyring and asymmetric keys.
