That means that Michael considered it is not for him.

And I think the reason is that in MAINTAINERS you have:

M:	Qiang Zhao <>
S:	Maintained
F:	drivers/soc/fsl/qe/
F:	include/soc/fsl/*qe*.h
F:	include/soc/fsl/*ucc*.h

M:	Li Yang <>
L: (moderated for non-subscribers)
S:	Maintained
F:	Documentation/devicetree/bindings/misc/fsl,dpaa2-console.yaml
F:	Documentation/devicetree/bindings/soc/fsl/
F:	drivers/soc/fsl/
F:	include/linux/fsl/

Sorry I overlooked your patch.
