I'll admit I got to the addressing point and wasn't entirely sure either 
- there still seemed to be a precedent of patches going to arm-soc 
picking up acks along the way, rather than via a sub-maintainer pull, 
hence what I ended up with.

Sure, I'll bear that in mind in future, especially when sending from an 
email domain which doesn't really make clear the context that I'm just 
another end-user posting a fix for something I found, rather than trying 
to assume any "official" capacity ;)

As a side note, the Juno dts* files don't actually seem to be covered by 
MAINTAINERS at all, which can't help the situation.

Sorry for the confusion,
