It's media specific. It used to be [media], but now changed to "media:"

My change 9feb786876c7 went through the media tree, because it directly
affected a media driver. This change affects the same thing, so I
assumed it's a media-tree patch, but I could be wrong. I'll await to be
told :)

Mauro's tree style choice as far as I know.

Well - I didn't know that existed :) So I've learnt something new.

Seems we now have three "submitting-patches" files to read:

find | grep submitting-patches
./Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst
./Documentation/hwmon/submitting-patches
./Documentation/devicetree/bindings/submitting-patches.txt


Perhaps adding some rules into checkpatch.pl is the way forward to
enforce prefixes where necessary ?

Absolutely! I believe that is a worthwhile thing to do :) and certainly
eases the strain on maintainers.

Yes, the difficulty is having so many lists, and subsystems with
different preferences. I've been told off for blindly including all
recipients from get_maintainers. Otherwise I'd just always use
 "git send-email --cc-cmd ./scripts/get_maintainers.pl ..."
