Greg already picked this patch up; so I will keep this patch as-is and move on.

But I agree:
I am still tuning my script and that still needs a bit of work, so I
will still need some time until the next patches will follow.
Once I am happy with the script and I go back to manual checking,
review and adjustment of its output, I will follow your suggestion,
and prioritize to check that all additions for ./include/linux and
./include/uapi/linux are complete.
However, I will probably not come back to the TTY LAYER for a while
(until I can fully automate those patches with high confidence). The
patch for the next subsystem will probably be MEMORY MANAGEMENT or so,
depending if the manual checks and reviews show that the patches are
sufficiently good for that second try. I will come back to TTY LAYER,
once my method can assign all files in ./include sufficiently well to
its corresponding MAINTAINERS section; that will then be probably part
of a larger patch series for all MAINTAINERS sections and not just to
check the method for one or two sections.
