I believe architecture-specific failures would have to be handled
separately. We can't really add a maintainer into a Config.in file.

Even if we have a global MAINTAINERS file, how would architecture
maintainers be expressed? In the kernel, the MAINTAINERS file creates a
relation between a person and set of files/directories, but an
architecture in Buildroot is not a set of files or directories.
