Subject: [PATCH v1 3/3] MAINTAINERS: xen, kvm: track pvclock-abi.h changes

This file defines an ABI shared between guest and hypervisor(s)
(KVM, Xen) and as such there should be an correspondent entry in
MAINTAINERS file. Notice that there's already a text notice at the
top of the header file, hence this commit simply enforces it more
explicitly and have both peers noticed when such changes happen.

Signed-off-by: Joao Martins <joao.m.martins@...cle.com>

This was suggested by folks at xen-devel as we missed some of the
ABI additions (e.g. flags field in pvti, TSC stable bit) - so this
patch is to help preventing that from happening. Alternatively I
could instead add a "PVCLOCK ABI" section in this file with the
two mailing lists.
