Hi Matti,

For ease of when this is ready to apply, better to just keep
key mailing lists and individuals cc'd on all patches.

Mind you cc list is random enough I'm guessing it wasn't
deliberate (like the maintainers patch 8 only went to lkml
where no one will notice it)

I can scrape these all of lore, but it's a step that not
all reviewers are going to bother with.
