Subject[resend PATCH] MAINTAINERS: Clarify UIO vs UACCESS maintainer
From
Date
The UIO file mask in MAINTAINERS was incorrectly directing UACCESS
(include/linux/uio.h) patches to Greg.

Tag Al as the UACCESS maintainer as Ingo and others have explicitly
required his ack before taking architecture patches that touch
lib/iov_iter.c.

I got a bounce last time I tried to send this, hopefully the situation
has improved now.

Al, let me know if you want this entry. Alternatively we can just do the
UIO file mask fixup by itself.
