I believe get_maintainer.pl is still going to do that for awhile as you are a commit signer for several of these driver files. Files that are not either "supported" or "maintained" by default add the --git-fallback option. For instance, With your patch: $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f drivers/i2c/algos/i2c-algo-bit.c Wolfram Sang <wsa+rene...@sang-engineering.com> (commit_signer:3/2=100%,authored:1/2=50%,added_lines:5/15=33%) Jean Delvare <jdelv...@suse.de> (commit_signer:1/2=50%,authored:1/2=50%,added_lines:10/15=67%,removed_lines:3/3=100%) linux-...@vger.kernel.org (open list:I2C SUBSYSTEM DRIVERS) firstname.lastname@example.org (open list) Your name should not be shown after a year or so unless you actually sign-off on patches to those subdirectories. btw: You signed-off using 2 different addresses on one of those patches. I think that's odd. commit 3e5f06bed72fe72166a6778f630241a893f67799 Author: Wolfram Sang <wsa+rene...@sang-engineering.com> Date: Mon Dec 4 09:16:18 2017 +0100 i2c: algo-bit: init the bus to a known state Ensure the bus is free when we register the adapter. Before the SCL/SDA wires were in an unknown state. It used to work because sending a byte has a retry mechanism which was triggered if the bus was initially in a non-free state. But the graceful way to do it is to initialize correctly. Signed-off-by: Wolfram Sang <wsa+rene...@sang-engineering.com> Signed-off-by: Wolfram Sang <w...@the-dreams.de>
