They haven't included a MAINTAINERS entry in the patch series and I
forgot to enforce it :)

This usually starts with the company's name or the driver name, so
something like "ESD PCIe/402 CAN DRIVER" and a separate entry for the
USB driver or "ESD CAN NETWORK DRIVERS" if you want to have a single

Yes, his name but with the socketcan@e.u email in MODULE_AUTHOR().
Regarding the top of the file's copyright information, the last patch
only mentions 2 iterations of "esd" but no "real" people nor email
addresses. I don't know what's you company's policy for the copyright
line is, I don't mind adding Thomas, but use the socketcan@e.u email.
People tend to look at the source file in case of problems, so better
have working addresses there.

Regarding the Co-Developed and Signed-off-by: Thomas posted the patches
back in 2015 with his email address, so use it for the Co-Developed and
Signed-off-by in your patch, too. This seems (or is) a bit inconsistent,
but the S-o-b's should record the history of the patch.
