I think so. Many subsystems relatively recently (in the last couple of
years or so) enforced that new drivers have to have official
maintainers. Besides that it's warmly welcome to register existing
drivers in the MAINTAINERS database. I would tell you go ahead and
become a maintainer of AT91 clocks and it will definitely reduce the
burden on Stephan's shoulders.

The idea is that you will send a PR to CCF maintainers instead of
patches, although it's expected that patches appear in the mailing
list beforehand anyway.
