Hi all,

I am resigning from my role as hardware monitoring subsystem
(drivers/hwmon) maintainer. This is too much work for me, I do not have
the necessary bandwidth to review all the incoming patches, in
particular new drivers, in a timely manner. Patch authors have been
complaining about this repeatedly. This is no fun for them, and even
less for me, so I'd rather let someone else with more spare time take
care of it. If there are volunteers, this is the right time to speak up.

I will still be maintaining the individual hardware monitoring drivers
I am listed for in file MAINTAINERS (adm1025, f71805f, lm83 and lm90)
as well as the I2C subsystem. No change here.

I will continue to feed -mm with pending hwmon patches until 2.6.21
final is released, then I'll send everything I have to Linus for
2.6.22-rc1, the last of which will be:

Then I'll probably keep an eye on hwmon in Linus' tree until 2.6.22
final is released, and after that I'm done with it.
