Subject: MAINTAINERS: add uapi directories to API/ABI section

Let's add include/uapi/ and arch/*/include/uapi/ to API/ABI section, so
that for patches modifying them, get_maintainers.pl suggests CCing
linux-api@ so people don't forget.

Can we please NOT do this.

Please see commit b14fd334ff3dc47b31c3592c166af5ea42b204d3.

In the past, include/uapi/ was listed as a file trigger, and the
consequence was a lot of low signal noise on linux-api@, until finally
I removed the trigger.

Thanks,

Michael
