get_maintainer: allow option --mpath <directory> to read all files in <directory>
There is an external use case for multiple private MAINTAINER style files in a separate directory. Allow it. --mpath has a default of "./MAINTAINERS". The value entered can be either a file or a directory. The behaviors are now: --mpath <file> Read only the specific file as <MAINTAINER_TYPE> file --mpath <directory> Read all files in <directory> as <MAINTAINER_TYPE> files --mpath <directory> --find-maintainer-files Recurse through <directory> and read all files named MAINTAINERS Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/991b2f20112d53863cd79e61d908f1d26d3e1971.camel@perches.com Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Tested-by: Don Zickus <dzickus@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
