Subject: About clk maintainership [Was: Re: [PULL] Add variants of devm_clk_get for prepared and enabled clocks enabled clocks]

Hello,

I adapted the Subject in the hope to catch Stephen's and Michael's
attention. My impression is that this thread isn't on their radar yet,
but the topic here seems important enough to get a matching Subject.

Wondering about how we can progress here I think it's crucial that
Stephen and/or Michael share their thoughts about how they intend to
care for drivers/clk in the future.

Do you want to keep the maintainer post long-term? Or only for a
transitional period until someone else can take care? Is your
non-presence only temporal and is it foreseeable that you will increase
your efforts in the next weeks/months again? Do you welcome a
co-maintainer? What kind of involvement would you consider helpful?

Thanks to Claudiu for offering to support here, at least from my side
this is very appreciated.

Best regards
Uwe
