+If changes affect userland-kernel interfaces, please send
+the MAN-PAGES maintainer (as listed in the MAINTAINERS file)
+a man-pages patch, or at least a notification of the change,
+so that some information makes its way into the manual pages.
Even if the maintainer did not respond in step #4, make sure to ALWAYS
copy the maintainer when you change their code.
