A file pattern line in this section of the MAINTAINERS file in linux-next
does not have a match in the linux source files.

This could occur because a matching filename was never added, was deleted
or renamed in some other commit.

The commits that added and if found renamed or removed the file pattern
are shown below.

Please fix this defect appropriately.

commit 4dea2d1a927c61114a168d4509b56329ea6effb7
Author: Sukadev Bhattiprolu <sukadev at>
Date:   Mon Aug 28 23:23:33 2017 -0700

    powerpc/powernv/vas: Define vas_init() and vas_exit()
    Implement vas_init() and vas_exit() functions for a new VAS module.
    This VAS module is essentially a library for other device drivers
    and kernel users of the NX coprocessors like NX-842 and NX-GZIP.
    In the future this will be extended to add support for user space
    to access the NX coprocessors.
    VAS is currently only supported with 64K page size.
