Char/Misc fixes for 4.18-rc5

Here are a few char/misc driver fixes for 4.18-rc5.

The "largest" stuff here is fixes for the UIO changes in 4.18-rc1 that
caused breakages for some people.  Thanks to Xiubo Li for fixing them
quickly.  Other than that, minor fixes for thunderbolt, vmw_balloon,
nvmem, mei, ibmasm, and mei drivers.  There's also a MAINTAINERS update
where Rafael is offering to help out with reviewing driver core patches.

All of these have been in linux-next with no reported issues.
