Just to let people know: the gigaset drivers will get my palliative care until
a few weeks before September 1, 2019. Because at that date the Dutch consumer
grade ISDN network (the "BRI" part of ISDN) will be shut down. So expect a
patch to remove me from MAINTAINERS sometime during the v5.2 cycle.

That leaves just Karsten Keil to look after all the ISDN drivers. Karsten's
last activity was in 2016. See commit 1e1589ad8b5c ("mISDN: Support DR6
indication in mISDNipac driver"). Which is also the last commit apparently
resolving an issue noticed by an actual _user_ of one of the ISDN drivers.

Perhaps Karsten could tell us whether there's any point in keeping the ISDN
subsystem in the tree after September 1, 2019, and if so, in what form. I'm in
no position to properly answer that question.
