Subject: [PATCH 1/1] scripts/get_maintainer: increase threshold for --follow to reduce time

get_maintainer tries to follow files with a matching threshold of default 50%.
This is not really necessary as we do not change a file and move it in the same
commit usually. Increasing the threshold to 90% should be sufficient.

I encountered this on a recent commit where I was touching 12 files. Time take
dropped from 24 sec to 12 sec after this change. It can be reduced further by
increasing the threshold, but I think 90% is sufficient.
