Paul is handling almost all of the powerpc related KVM patches nowadays,
so he should be mentioned in the MAINTAINERS file accordingly.

Orphaned? :)

It's a dead architecture anyways, I don't expect too much to flow in
there. I'm sure Paul handles the occasional patch that affects the code
just fine.
