how do you find the subsystem of a file?

i wrote a patch that got rejected because it did not apply cleanly to
the tree of greg kh
the file i modified is
get_maintainer.pl gave me the list of emails to send the patch to,
and i used it for that purpose. the file
Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst says to see the T: entry
for the subsystem in MAINTAINERS to find the right tree to base the
patch on. i tried searching through MAINTAINERS and found that there
are a few subsystems that start with RTL8*.
greg kh is listed a few times in MAINTAINERS, so i'm not able to find
the exact tree to start with by looking for the maintainer.
is there a systematic way of finding the subsystem, given a file?
in addition, how do i know what branch to use? the T: entries have a
repo, but not a branch name.
