Do we need to do anythign to avoid his kind of thing in future? e.g. a
MAINTAINERS patch for the ARM EFI bits?
Or do we just need to pay attention to linux-efi?
It never hit linux-efi, and I wasn't Cc'd, which means the entries
that do exist in MAINTAINERS were ignored anyway.
Because what would usually happens in that situation is that I would
ask ARM people to chime in.
It looks like all the NVDIMM changes came via Dan's nvdimm tree.
