Supporter means he gets paid to look after that
subsystem so he is something other than a volunteer.

from MAINTAINERS:
S: Status, one of the following:
   Supported: Someone is actually paid to look after this.
   Maintained: Someone actually looks after it.
   Odd Fixes: It has a maintainer but they don't have time to do
much other than throw the odd patch in. See below..
   Orphan: No current maintainer [but maybe you could take the
role as you write your new code].
   Obsolete: Old code. Something tagged obsolete generally means
it has been replaced by a better system and you
should be using that.
