FWIW, I've been treating Alan as "PATA sub-maintainer", and tend to wait 
for an Alan review of a PATA driver patch before applying it [unless 
it's blindingly obvious or Bart chimes etc.].

But yes, overall, libata is certainly not SATA-only anymore, and 
MAINTAINERS should reflect that.

Maybe a patch like the attached?  (DaveM CC'd, since I modified the 
old-IDE entry as well)
