Are you suggesting that nobody should ever use linuxppc64-dev now? If
so, patching MAINTAINERS doesn't seem like the right way to enforce

Do we want to think about merging the mailing lists? Both seem fairly
high-volume right now (compare
http://ozlabs.org/pipermail/linuxppc64-dev/ and
http://ozlabs.org/pipermail/linuxppc-dev/). linuxppc-embedded is
separate. There are certainly lots of emails and patches that are common
to both 32- and 64-bit, though...

The subscriber lists don't overlap 100%, but the difference might be
small enough not to matter to many people.
