scripts/get_maintainer.pl: optionally ignore non-maintainer signatures
When using --git to determine who to send a patch to, get_maintainers will currently include all signatures. This can include signers that simply report an issue or test a patch. Signers that use this tag are not necessarily good candidates to review new patches. This patch allows get_maintainers to optionally restrict output to only signatures that use Signed-off-by:, Acked-by:, or Reviewed-by:. Signed-off-by: is included because those are people who are responsible for the code. Acked-by: is questionable, but as signers that use this tag tend to be active linux gatekeepers, false positives are tolerable. Reviewed-by: is included because signers responsible for the code thought that the review feedback for a changeset by that signer was valuable. This patch has been modified from Florian's original submission to change the supported signature types to the canonical forms and use slightly different spacing. A couple of spacing issues were also corrected in the original source. The command line argument was also renamed.
