No, I usually take media patches on staging. It seems that at least
the IIO subsystem does the same:

IIO SUBSYSTEM AND DRIVERS
M: Jonathan Cameron <jic23@kernel.org>
R: Hartmut Knaack <knaack.h@gmx.de>
R: Lars-Peter Clausen <lars@metafoo.de>
R: Peter Meerwald-Stadler <pmeerw@pmeerw.net>
L: linux-iio@vger.kernel.org
T: git git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jic23/iio.git
S: Maintained
F: Documentation/ABI/testing/configfs-iio*
F: Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-bus-iio*
F: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/iio/
F: drivers/iio/
F: drivers/staging/iio/
F: include/linux/iio/
F: tools/iio/

Anyway, as I said before, I don't have any issues if Greg takes
this specific patch.

Yes, but, on the other hand, get_maintainers.pl would likely
take more time to process, if a patch touches multiple subsystems.

Hmm... just getting a random file under staging/media:

./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f drivers/staging/media/imx/imx-ic.h
Steve Longerbeam <slongerbeam@gmail.com> (maintainer:MEDIA DRIVERS FOR FREESCALE IMX)
Philipp Zabel <p.zabel@pengutronix.de> (maintainer:MEDIA DRIVERS FOR FREESCALE IMX)
Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@kernel.org> (maintainer:MEDIA INPUT INFRASTRUCTURE (V4L/DVB))
Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org> (supporter:STAGING SUBSYSTEM)
linux-media@vger.kernel.org (open list:MEDIA DRIVERS FOR FREESCALE IMX)
devel@driverdev.osuosl.org (open list:STAGING SUBSYSTEM)
linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list)

It seems that the maintainers are already ordered by the tree
depth (placing the most relevant results first).

So, both driver maintainers appear first, then me and finally
Greg (as supporter).

Mailing lists are also ordered by relevance: media ML, then staging
ML and finally LKML.

Thanks,
Mauro
