CPU frequency drivers MAINTAINERS update

Remove myself as cpufreq maintainer.
x86 driver changes can go through the regular x86/ACPI trees.
ARM driver changes through the ARM trees.
cpufreq core changes are rare these days, and can just go to lkml/direct.

If there's no maintainer, it's not really maintained.

Maybe:

S: Orphan

Would you mind if I took over the maintenance of cpufreq, so that it goes
along with the other core power management code?

I'm taking the silence as "no, I wouldn't". :-)

Thanks,

Sure. I'll still be looking at it occasionally so I'll be around to ack
things if necessary. I just don't have time to deal with build-testing
architectures I don't care about for eg, and dealing with the inevitable fallout
when things break.

The only words of advice I give to you or whoever takes over, is to push back
on adding more sysfs knobs to cpufreq. There's no end to what people want to do,
and adding "just one more knob" seems to be the default action. It's already
gotten out of hand, and more knobs aren't always the right answer.

Dave
