Subject: [PATCH] MAINTAINERS: add myself as slab allocators maintainer

I would like to help with slab allocators maintenance, from the perspective of
being responsible for SLAB and more recently also SLUB in an enterprise distro
kernel and supporting its users. Recently I've been focusing on improving
SLUB's debugging features, and patch review in the area, including the kmemcg
accounting rewrite last year.

Hi,

this might look perhaps odd with 4 people (plus Andrew) already listed, but on
closer look we have 2 (or 3 if you count SLOB) allocators and the focus of each
maintainer varies. Maybe this would be also an opportunity to split the area
explicitly, if the maintainers would want that? I'm fine with all of them
personally - while we moved to SLUB in new code streams, olders ones with SLAB
will continue be supported for years anyway.

Thanks,
Vlastimil
