I think "K: " (content regex) in MAINTAINERS is best avoided.  This isn't the
first time that someone has volunteered to maintain all files containing $foo,
then complained when they receive emails for those files as they requested...

If you do really want to use it, can you use a more specific regex?  E.g. a
regex that matches "#include <linux/phylink.h>" or some specific function(s)?
