Right, thanks, I forgot all about this separate entry.  I added Lorenzo
there, resulting in the patch below.

My practice has been that all the PCI patches (everything in
drivers/pci plus some include and x86/pci stuff) have been merged via
my tree.

This includes things in drivers/pci/{host,dwc,endpoint,switch}, which
are non-core things and usually specific to a chipset.  I try to
ensure they have individual maintainers designated, and I ask for
their acks for non-trivial changes because I have no specs and no
hardware for testing them.  But I think it's still good to have one
person look over them all to try to keep some consistency across them
because they are all quite similar.

So my hope is that Lorenzo can take over that oversight role from me,
not that he would replace any of those designated maintainers.

Ideally, this will be transparent to patch submitters except that they
should add Lorenzo to the "To:" line (keeping linux-pci and other
interested parties).
