I did that because there were no CPU specific maintainers listed.
My goal was to update the file to reflect practice.  Where our
practice needs improving, it is a good chance to do that.

You are in a special position. You are THE expert on the SPARC64
port and BSPs.  GCC has the following another class of
permission and I think it would be more than appropriate for
you to have "localized write permission" for SPARC64 port and BSPs.

I have attached a second version of the MAINTAINERS file.  At this
point, a diff is harder to read. :)
