Implementation of the ``maintainers-include`` reST-directive.
:copyright: Copyright (C) 2019 Kees Cook <>
:license: GPL Version 2, June 1991 see linux/COPYING for details.
The ``maintainers-include`` reST-directive performs extensive parsing
specific to the Linux kernel's standard "MAINTAINERS" file, in an
effort to avoid needing to heavily mark up the original plain text.
