Maybe you can add yourself to MAINTAINERS file as well? :)
I dunno if that's actually needed, but at least this should
stop "strain" patches like this to be sent to -trivial alone... ;)

Okay, since there's no entry for vmxnet in MAINTAINERS, and with
your blessing, and since this is a rather specific device which
is not in common use, I'll apply it to -trivial, for now, unless
you want to pick it up and send a pull request for it.

Given your description, I think it should be Cc: address@hidden
