I'm not opposed to the idea, but I'm not seeing how we can do this
completely.  What you've added only covers dove soc bindings.  There's
orion5x, kirkwood, and all the newer mvebu socs.  Not to mention a lot
of IP blocks we care about that aren't SoC- or Marvell-specific.

The dts files have a much more clear file pattern -> maintainer pairing.
Perhaps we should make checkpatch smarter?  e.g. compatible strings
found in changed binding docs are searched for in dts{i} files.  Hits
are mapped to maintainers.
