patman: Add a call to get_maintainer.pl if it exists



For Linux the best way to figure out where to send a patch is with the
"get_maintainer.pl" script.  Add support for calling it from patman.
Support is added unconditionally for "scripts/get_maintainer.pl" in
case it is helpful for any other projects.

How to configure it
===================

For most cases of using patman for U-Boot developement patman will

For Linux the 'scripts/get_maintainer.pl' handles figuring out where
to send patches pretty well.
During the first run patman creates a config file for you by taking the default
user name and email address from the global .gitconfig file.
