They are; it's just that get_maintainer.pl has silly defaults. There's
no reason it should include the full chain from the leaf driver to the
subsystem to the LKML by default, with a bunch of authors and commit
signers on top. Especially so for supported drivers. I'm surprised it
doesn't include Linus by default.

Heh. Let's just say I care more about dri-devel.
