It's not just about mailing lists, it's also about changes flowing in to
mainline via a plethora of subsystem and driver repos and branches. See
MAINTAINERS. Or this old LWN page [1]. The development happens in those
branches, and if you make treewide changes like this, it's not clear who
should take it, and you also risk unnecessary conflicts if those places
get modified in the individual branches. So it might just be easiest to
split this up to smaller patches sent to the appropriate lists.

Anyway, all that said,

Acked-by: Jani Nikula <jani.nikula@xxxxxxxxx>

on the i915 changes here.
