OK,.. so if we're going to do this can we talk about the syntax here.

I would like to also use this for SCHED and PERF, but since both are
rather big I would like to be able to subdivide things. Now I could of
course go create many MAINTAINER sections, but that feels artificial.

So I would like to be able to write:

R: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@xxxxxxxxxxx> (kernel/sched/rt.c)
R: Juri Lelli <juri.lelli@xxxxxxxxx> (kernel/sched/deadline.c)

or something like that. And here I've already done concessions in that
the above is machine readable. Ideally I'd be able to say things like:
'for sched and numa related things' add 'rik and mel'.

Hmm, maybe we can look at the patch subject tag like: sched/numa or
sched/rt or sched/deadline etc.. instead of the files touched.
