[Qemu-devel] [PULL 0/4] Cut down on Andreas' maintainer responsibilities

Hello Peter et al.,

In a desperate attempt to restore sanity to my inbox and my personal well-being
I am pulling the plug on most of my maintainer responsibilities:

1) I am no longer able to test nor interested in Cocoa patches. Peter has
taken this over and dropped ppc64 support but did not yet drop me.

2) I have not actively worked on PReP for a long time. My last patches
to refactor Super I/O for Markus got stuck (floppy, isa-serial, etc.)
and probably no longer apply due to their large code movements.
Someone picking up that series will be appreciated.

3) We never fully figured out the workflow for maintaining stable branches
post-mdroth, so those activities have ceased and newer releases are no longer
being documented in MAINTAINERS anyway.

4) I have been unable and unwilling to spend as much time on the QOM CPUs
as some people are expecting of me, nor am I using KVM much myself these days
for testing, and I don't want to block hot-plug work.

That leaves the core QOM code, which was never exclusively me, so I'm hoping
we can distribute that well enough over the various trees.

I may contribute to some of those areas, but please stop CC'ing me on huge 
including areas that I was never maintainer for, or putting time pressure on me.
If you have concrete questions for me, please ask me directly or I am likely
to just ignore patches. But for now after weeks of illness I am taking a break 
will be unavailable as of tomorrow for the next two weeks.

I also recall having uint64 visitor fixes from ~2.5 somewhere; someone picking
them up would be appreciated, I think it was only minor requests for a respin.
