Allow K: entries in MAINTAINERS to match directly against filenames;
either those extracted from patch +++ or --- lines, or those specified
on the command-line using the -f option.

This potentially allows fewer lines in a MAINTAINERS entry, if all the
relevant files are scattered throughout the whole kernel tree, yet
contain some common keyword. An example would be using an ARM SoC name
as the keyword to catch all related drivers.

I don't think setting exact_pattern_match_hash would be appropriate here;
at least for intended Tegra use case, this feature is to ensure that all
Tegra-related driver changes get Cc'd to the Tegra mailing list. Setting
exact_pattern_match_hash would prevent git history parsing for e.g. S-o-b
tags, which still seems like it would be useful. Hence, this flag isn't
set.

V4:
* Updated documentation at the start of MAINTAINERS to mention filename
  matching.
* s/"/'/ in if check for type 'K'.

Note: I left in my comments in the patch description about not setting
exact_pattern_match_hash as rational for future git archaeologists.

The removal of file isn't correct.

This should read "patch, file or filename".

If the -f pattern is a single file,
get_maintainer reads that file content and then
matches any K: patterns.

When the -f pattern is a directory, it doesn't.

here too.

three.

cheers, Joe

Yes, I guess that's true; I had convinced myself that "file" wasn't
accurate since "-f directory/" didn't scan the files within that
directory tree, but as you say "-f file" does scan the file content.

BTW, given I'm adding "filename" to the list, I intend to change the
existing "file" to "file content" to be clear. Are you OK with that?
