get_maintainer.pl: allow "K:" pattern tests to match non-patch text
Joe Perches [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:24 +0000 (16:34 -0700)]
Extend the usage of the K section in the MAINTAINERS file to support
matching regular expressions to any arbitrary text that may precede the
patch itself.  For example, the commit message or mail headers generated
by git-format-patch.
