[RFC 2/2] MAINTAINERS: add a limited ARM and ARM64 SoC entry
krzk at kernel.org
Tue Dec 1 16:15:16 EST 2020
It is expected for ARM and ARM64 SoC related code to go through
sub-architecture maintainers. Their addresses were therefore not
documented to push patch traffic through sub-architecture maintainers.
However when patches touch generic code, e.g. multi_v7_defconfig, the
patch might not be picked up by them and instead should go to the SoC
maintainers - Arnd and Olof.
Add a minimal maintainer's entry for SoC covering only Makefile, so it
will not appear on most of submissions (except new devicetree boards).
It will though serve as a documentation and reference for cases when
submitter does not know where to send his SoC-related patches.
