Subject[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.

Al, let me know if this is ok. Alternatively we could just fix the file
mask for UIO and not add a new UACCESS section.
