I've got to bet this is going to cause more issues than it solves.
SCSI uses scsi: <driver>: for drivers but not every driver has a
MAINTAINERS entry. We use either scsi: or scsi: core: for mid layer
things, but we're not consistent. Block uses blk-<something>: for all
of it's stuff but almost no <somtehing>s have a MAINTAINERS entry. So
the next thing you're going to cause is an explosion of suggested
MAINTAINERs entries.

Has anyone actually complained about treewide:?
