Aah, then there's a misunderstanding here. Nothing was moved to the top
(at least not by me). I only updated the bottom part to match reality,
i.e. removed lines where some maintainer removed himself from a Makefile
but forgot to remove himself from the bottom in src/MAINTAINERS.

So if the plan is to scrap the bottom, plus MAINTAINER= in Makefiles
entirely without further inquiries we're in violent agreement. But
I'll leave that to you, as it appears that touching MAINTAINERS is a
recipe for heat generation :-)
