This is the 4th time I send this patch. Is the VMBus infrastructure
used / maintained? Should we deprecate & remove?

There's an email thread at [1] explaining the reasons for having VMBus
infrastructure last time such question was asked.

In short: mere presence of a working VMBus is needed for some high-speed
Windows debugging, also people are working on VMBus host device drivers.

Great. Do you mind adding an entry in MAINTAINERS to
cover these files, so we stop wondering about them?

I will submit a patch next week adding myself as a reviewer of VMBus code
so there is at least some contact point for incoming patches.

We'll see whether the code still gets just a random patch a few times
a year or whether it requires a permanent maintainer to take care of it.
