Since Paul isn't looking after the MIPS arch code anymore, Ralf hasn't
been seen maintaining MIPS for a long time, Thomas is only responsible
for the next part of it:
F: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/mips/
F: Documentation/mips/
F: arch/mips/
F: drivers/platform/mips/
the MIPS-specific drivers like:
F: drivers/bus/mips_cdmm.c
F: drivers/irqchip/irq-mips-cpu.c
F: drivers/irqchip/irq-mips-gic.c
F: drivers/clocksource/mips-gic-timer.c
F: drivers/cpuidle/cpuidle-cps.c
seem to be left for the subsystems maintainers to support. So if you don't
mind or unless there is a better alternative, I can help with looking
after them to ease the maintainers review burden and since I'll be working
on our MIPS-based SoC drivers integrating into the mainline kernel repo
anyway. If you don't like this idea, please just decline the last
patch in the series.

Given how deeply integrated the MIPS GIC is in the architecture, I'd
really like Thomas to co-maintain it, or at the very least give his
blessing on you being the dedicated point of contact for MIPS GIC
