Try harder to find email and maintainer name.
Debian's own devscripts all use DEBEMAIL or DEBFULLNAME
prior to an eventual EMAIL or NAME environment variable.
Match their logic.

"Anonymous Maintainer" sounds nicer then Kernel compiler
if no name is found. As bonus add more descriptive changelog
entry.
