The choice was deliberate: the PReP machine has a different set of
maintainers. If possible when we have a particular section in
MAINTAINERS I'd like to use it as separation, to let the maintainers
track changes in tests.

In this example, Hervé is interested to look for PReP related files,
but doesn't have bandwidth to look at all PPC patches.

If this doesn't scale, I suggested (was it on the list or directly
to Willian?) to add a Python script to map Avocado test tags to
MAINTAINERS entry, so 1/ maintainers could run all tests linked to
their subsystem by naming the subsystem, and 2/ when a test fails
we know which maintainer to contact.
