Hm OK not that this is used very much, and nothing to argue about
so patch applied.

However we do not really recognize corporate bodies as maintainers,
only physical people whose GPG keys we can sign ... but I
guess you wanted to convey that the driver is the work of several
individuals inside BRCM and thus authors, while you take care
of the maintenance.

A patch to MAINTAINERS adding this to Christians entry for
the SoCs or as a standalone entry with Markus as maintainer
would be more important and usefule than this though, so I'm
throwing out that challenge!
