Subject[PATCH v3 3/3] MAINTAINERS: xen, kvm: track pvclock-abi.h changes
This file defines an ABI shared between guest and hypervisor(s)
(KVM, Xen) and as such there should be an correspondent entry in
MAINTAINERS file. Notice that there's already a text notice at the
top of the header file, hence this commit simply enforces it more
explicitly and have both peers noticed when such changes happen.

Signed-off-by: Joao Martins <>
Acked-by: Juergen Gross <>
In the end, I choose the originally posted because this is so far the
only ABI shared between Xen/KVM. Therefore whenever we have more things
shared it would deserve its own place in MAINTAINERS file. If the
thinking is wrong, I can switch to the alternative with a
"PARAVIRT ABIS" section.

Changes since v1:
* Add Juergen Gross Acked-by.
