This patch changes type of xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx

The output of ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl is
modified to report xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx as a list:

What's the problem with that? All XFS patches and problem
reports should be sent to the xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx list. There are far
more people than just the maintainer that can triage problems,
answer questions and review patches...

It was just disturbing: I was looking for a list for XFS
and found only maintainers.
Except dm-devel, no others public mailing list is used as a maintainer.
So I thought it was a misinterpretation after following commit:
