get_maintainers.pl: follow renames when looking up commit signers
I happen to have had a commit to various network drivers since the big renaming/reorg which happened to drivers/net recently. This means that I now appear to be in the top few commit signers (by %age) for many of them so am getting sent all sorts of stuff and people who are involved with the driver are not. e.g. (to pick one at random): $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f drivers/net/ethernet/nvidia/forcedeth.c "David S. Miller" <davem@davemloft.net> (commit_signer:5/7=71%) Ian Campbell <ian.campbell@citrix.com> (commit_signer:2/7=29%) Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> (commit_signer:1/7=14%) Jeff Kirsher <jeffrey.t.kirsher@intel.com> (commit_signer:1/7=14%) Jiri Pirko <jpirko@redhat.com> (commit_signer:1/7=14%) netdev@vger.kernel.org (open list:NETWORKING DRIVERS) linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list) With the following patch the renames are followed and the result appears much more sensible: $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f drivers/net/ethernet/nvidia/forcedeth.c "David S. Miller" <davem@davemloft.net> (commit_signer:31/34=91%) Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> (commit_signer:11/34=32%) Szymon Janc <szymon@janc.net.pl> (commit_signer:5/34=15%) Jiri Pirko <jpirko@redhat.com> (commit_signer:3/34=9%) Paul <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com> (commit_signer:2/34=6%) netdev@vger.kernel.org (open list:NETWORKING DRIVERS) linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list) Signed-off-by: Ian Campbell <Ian.Campbell@citrix.com> Acked-by: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
