Yeah. I'm aware of that. The thing is that you don't appear
as a maintainer of this file:

$ scripts/ --nokeywords --nogit --nogit-fallback -f drivers/atm/iphase.c
Chas Williams <3chas3@xxxxxxxxx> (maintainer:ATM)
linux-atm-general@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (moderated list:ATM)
netdev@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (open list:ATM)
linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (open list)

so, I didn't know this patch would be applied to net.
