    get_maintainer: allow keywords to match filenames · eb90d085

    Allow K: entries in MAINTAINERS to match directly against filenames;
    either those extracted from patch +++ or --- lines, or those specified
    on the command-line using the -f option.
    This potentially allows fewer lines in a MAINTAINERS entry, if all the
    relevant files are scattered throughout the whole kernel tree, yet
    contain some common keyword.  An example would be using an ARM SoC name
    as the keyword to catch all related drivers.
    I don't think setting exact_pattern_match_hash would be appropriate
    here; at least for intended Tegra use case, this feature is to ensure
    that all Tegra-related driver changes get Cc'd to the Tegra mailing
    list.  Setting exact_pattern_match_hash would prevent git history
    parsing for e.g.  S-o-b tags, which still seems like it would be useful.
    Hence, this flag isn't set.
