Likely this is get_maintainer.pl's fault:

$ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f include/linux/uio.h
Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org> (maintainer:USERSPACE I/O (UIO))
linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list)

Maybe a MAINTAINERS update like the following is warranted, because I
don't think -mm developers are right either, Al seems to be authority
on iov_iter apis:

In any event, the patch in question is a trivial one liner, I feel
confident sending it along to Linus with some other pending fixes.
