The QEMU virt and spike machines currently export a riscv,isa string of

While the RISC-V foundation has been ratifying a bunch of extenstions
etc, the kernel has remained relatively static with what hardware is
supported - but the same is not true of QEMU. Using the virt machine
and running dt-validate on the dumped dtb fails, partly due to the
unexpected isa string.

Rather than enumerate the many many possbilities, change the pattern
to a regex, with the following assumptions:
- the single letter order is fixed & we don't care about things that
  can't even do "ima"
- the standard multi letter extensions are all in a "_z<foo>" format
  where the first letter of <foo> is a valid single letter extension
- _s & _h are used for supervisor and hyper visor extensions.
- after the first two chars, a standard multi letter extension name
  could be an english   word (ifencei anyone?) so it's not worth
  restricting the charset
- vendor ISA extensions begind with _x and have no charset restrictions
- we don't care about an e extension from an OS pov
- that attempting to validate the contents of the multiletter extensions
  with dt-validate beyond the formatting is a futile, massively verbose
  or unwieldy exercise at best.
- ima are required

The following limitations also apply:
- multi letter extension ordering is not enforced. dt-schema does not
  appear to allow for named match groups, so the resulting regex would
  be even more of a headache.
- ditto for the numbered extensions.

Finally, add me as a maintainer of the binding so that when it breaks
in the future, I can be held responsible!

Palmer, feel free to drop the maintainer addition. I just mostly want
to clean up my own mess on this when they decide to ratify more
extensions & this comes back up again.
