.mailmap: add a file to allow git to show correct emails

the .mailmap file allows git to correct committer details in things like
git log. Compare `git log --author=yves` with `git log --use-mailmap --author=yves`
the former finds commits I have made using old email addresses, the latter
finds nothing as the corrected version of my name is "Yves Orton". Conversly
`git log --use-mailmap --author=Yves` will find pretty much *all* of my commits.
