For non-common code, I am curious if it's possible to make MAINTAINERS
hierarchical, perhaps by using multiple files or adding an optional path
next to the person's name in the top-level file.
For example, if somebody has a particular interest in the x201, they can
echo "$NAME >> src/mainboard/lenovo/x201/MAINTAINERS"
echo "$NAME src/mainboard/lenovo/x201" >> MAINTAINERS"
and then have gerrit add $NAME as a reviewer to any patches that touch the
