I'm using get_maintainers.pl with no arguments, and for rtl8723bs, I am 
getting a lot of different mailing lists.
For core/rtw_ieee80211.c, I'm getting the following list:
Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh at linuxfoundation.org>
Michael Straube <straube.linux at gmail.com>
Andy Shevchenko <andy.shevchenko at gmail.com>
Hardik Singh Rathore <hardiksingh.k at gmail.com>
Payal Kshirsagar <payal.s.kshirsagar.98 at gmail.com>
Nishka Dasgupta <nishkadg.linux at gmail.com>
devel at driverdev.osuosl.org (open list:STAGING SUBSYSTEM)
linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org (open list)

Which is not the same as for core/rtw_mlme_ext.c (the current patch).

Okay, I'll combine then. But is there any metric I should be using to 
filter the output of get_maintainer.pl? Currently I'm running it with no 
arguments and just adding everyone.

Thanking you,
