I think if the board can be found in MAINTAINERS, this should have
preference, i. e. always printed first.  Normaly, it should be the
only address printed.

We might also want to double-check git log based resutls against
include/configs/<name>.h - this file is way more often edited by the

Eventually "-m" should just print one address; we could add "-M" for all found addresses.

Hm... there are also problems with the code:

	-> ./MAKEALL -m TQM860L
	tail: cannot open `1090' for reading: No such file or directory
	TQM860L: Joakim.Tjernlund at transmode.se plagnioj at jcrosoft.com ptyser at xes-inc.com wd at denx.de

What's this "tail" error?

	-> ./MAKEALL -m mpc8xx
	fatal: ambiguous argument 'board/extquote': unknown revision or path not in the working tree.
	Use '--' to separate paths from revisions

Doesn't work at all.

Best regards,
