Add an entry to MAINTAINERS that matches every patch, and requests the
user send patches to qemu-devel@nongnu.org.

It's not 100% obvious to project newcomers that all patches should be sent
there; checkpatch doesn't say so, and since it mentions other lists to CC,
the wording "the list" from the SubmitAPatch wiki page can be taken
to mean only those lists, not the main list too.

The F: entries were taken from a similar entry in the Linux kernel.

Modify get_maintainer.pl so that the all-matching list entry doesn't
prevent the git fallback from ever triggering. The fallback now relies
on finding a real person in MAINTAINERS, not just a mailing list for
the relevant sub-community. This portion of the patch was suggested by
