This sounds about right, but the MAINTAINERS file is a bit out of
date/useless from time to time. I do my best to not loose patches sent
to any of the linuxppc- lists (that mailbox is at ~850 saved msgs right
now too..) but occasionally things get pushed beyond my normal viewing
window and aren't seen until I go back and try and clean it out. :)
