Okay, that's really not nice.

This is _not_ a question for Stephen.  Stephen does _not_ co-maintain

addressing this to Stephen when this is clearly a question for me to

Technically, it is redundant anyway, as I'm listed for all arch/arm
changes.  However, the maintainership of arch/arm and the maintainership
of clkdev are separate, the explicit entry is quite right.

It's also right that it's retained, because if we stop using the generic
clkdev.h header, I want to be copied on such a change, and this entry
will allow checkpatch to list me as clkdev maintainer.
