I agree. And if a subset of files needs a separate set of maintainers
or reviewers, it doesn't seem excessive to split it into a separate
MAINTAINERS entry. For instance, if you want kernel/sched/rt.c to have
an additional set of maintainers/reviewers, just add a MAINTAINERS entry
for "SCHEDULER - REALTIME" with an appropriate "F:" line.
