The git history shows that the files under ./tools/lib/traceevent/ are
being developed and maintained by Tzetomir Stoyanov and Steven Rostedt
and are discussed on linux-trace-devel list.

Add a suitable section in MAINTAINERS for patches to reach them.

This was identified with a small script that finds all files only
belonging to "THE REST" according to the current MAINTAINERS file, and I
acted upon its output.

RFC patch (from early 2020) here: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200201161931.29665-1-lukas.bulwahn@gmail.com/

also copied Steven's Acked-by from the RFC patch.

Arnaldo, please pick this quick patch.

Hmm, this is now an obsolete library, as future work is being developed at:

  https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/libs/libtrace/libtraceevent.git/

We probably want people to start using that instead, and eventually
remove the tools/lib/traceveent/ directory entirely.
