Subject[PATCH v2] .mailmap: Add Maciej W. Rozycki's Imagination e-mail address
Following my recent transition from Imagination Technologies to the 
reincarnated MIPS company add a .mailmap mapping for my work address,
so that `scripts/' gets it right for past commits.

OK, sorry about that. I wasn't even aware the difference would matter,
especially as Linus Lüssing's name shows up correctly in my mailer either

For the record, this was picked up by `alpine' automagically from:

Posting Character Set = <No Value Set: using most specific>

I switched that to UTF-8 and did a check before this v2 and the headers
produced seemed all right, so I hope this one is as well.

Or rather because back in the 1990s the matter of using non-ASCII
encodings was a horrible mess. And then it stuck, for consistency.
