Another option would be to write your name
slightly differently in the 2 entries.

For instance, add "(LF)" to the linuxfoundation.org entry like:

CPU POWER MONITORING SUBSYSTEM
M: Thomas Renninger <trenn@suse.com>
M: Shuah Khan <shuah@kernel.org>
M: Shuah Khan (LF) <skhan@linuxfoundation.org>
L: linux-pm@vger.kernel.org
S: Maintained
F: tools/power/cpupower/

and then the get_maintainer.pl script won't
collapse the equally named but with different
email addresses into a single entry:

$ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f tools/power/cpupower/
Thomas Renninger <trenn@suse.com> (maintainer:CPU POWER MONITORING SUBSYSTEM)
Shuah Khan <shuah@kernel.org> (maintainer:CPU POWER MONITORING SUBSYSTEM)
"Shuah Khan (LF)" <skhan@linuxfoundation.org> (maintainer:CPU POWER MONITORING SUBSYSTEM)
linux-pm@vger.kernel.org (open list:CPU POWER MONITORING SUBSYSTEM)
linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list)
