Thanks for the input!
I had a look at get_maintainer.pl, but thought I'd send it to you and Linus
first to get initial input since we had already talked about it.
I'll move it to drivers/soc/aspeed and will resend.
For clarification: Should I send to ALL of the people and lists that
get_maintainer.pl spits out?
