From: Stephen Warren <swarren@nvidia.com>

Create a new N: entry type in MAINTAINERS which performs a regex match
against filenames; either those extracted from patch +++ or --- lines,
or those specified on the command-line using the -f option.

This provides the same benefits as using a K: regex option to match a
set of filenames (see commit eb90d08 "get_maintainer: allow keywords to
match filenames"), but without the disadvantage that "random" file
content, such as comments,  will ever match the regex.
