There was a recent thread about unmaintained files in QEMU where it was
noted that a few RISC-V related files had slipped through the patterns
in our MAINTAINERS file entry.  This patch adds some more aggressive
pattern matching in an attempt to rectify this situation.

QEMU doesn't support the 'N' tag.
I see from the Linux kernel:

   N: Files and directories with regex patterns.
      N:   [^a-z]tegra     all files whose path contains the word tegra
      One pattern per line.  Multiple N: lines acceptable.
      scripts/get_maintainer.pl has different behavior for files that
      match F: pattern and matches of N: patterns.  By default,
      get_maintainer will not look at git log history when an F: pattern
      match occurs.  When an N: match occurs, git log history is used
      to also notify the people that have git commit signatures.

Should we add this feature to checkscript?

Ah, I didn't check because I just copied this from our Linux entry. It's pretty much the core of what I'm trying to do here so if it's easy then that'd be great.

Unfortunately I don't know how to do so.
