Reviewers are people who should be Cc'ed on all patches, as are
Maintainers, so no, fundamentally they are treated the same by a
Here is some output for Maintainers/Reviews from get_maintainer.pl.
$ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f arch/arm/boot/dts/vf500.dtsi
Shawn Guo <shawnguo at kernel.org> (maintainer:ARM/FREESCALE VYBRID ARM ARCHITECTURE)
Sascha Hauer <kernel at pengutronix.de> (maintainer:ARM/FREESCALE VYBRID ARM ARCHITECTURE)
Stefan Agner <stefan at agner.ch> (reviewer)
Russell King <linux at arm.linux.org.uk> (maintainer:ARM PORT)
linux-arm-kernel at lists.infradead.org (moderated list:ARM/FREESCALE VYBRID ARM ARCHITECTURE)
devicetree at vger.kernel.org (open list:OPEN FIRMWARE AND FLATTENED DEVICE TREE BINDINGS)
linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org (open list)
