get_maintainer.pl: find maintainers for removed files
For removed files, get_maintainer.pl doesn't find any maintainers (besides the default linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org), as it only looks at the "+++" lines, which are "/dev/null" for removals. Fix this by extending the parsing to the "---" lines. E.g. for the two line test patch below the real score maintainers will now be found: --- a/arch/score/include/asm/dma-mapping.h +++ /dev/null Signed-off-by: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert@linux-m68k.org> Cc: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
