I have compiled the latest stable kernel version 5.13.2 with defconfig X86
architecture on ubuntu 20.04 vagrant VM.

The MAINTAINERS file can be divided into 3 sections to understand what it
is.


   1.

   The first section is providing instructions for people who want to
   submit patches to the kernel. According to the instructions, thorough
   testing of the patches should be done and all concerned people should be
   CCed. Variable names and formatting should be according to the existing
   coding style. There shouldn’t be any ambiguity as to who owns the patch
   (employer or employee).



   1.

   The second section is a list of abbreviations used in the file. For
   example, M for Maintainer, R for Reviewer, S for Status of the code, B for
   the URI of the web page for bug-related things, F for file directory
   pattern, L for the Mailing list, T for Tree type and location.



   1.

   The third section is the actual list of Maintainers of the different
   parts of Kernel distinguished by their areas. This list should be in
   Alphabetical order.


There were no Reviewers mentioned for the sections given in the mail,
Maintainers are mentioned below.
