[libvirt] [PATCH V2 libvirt-python] Fix duplicate entries in AUTHORS

The generated AUTHORS file contains many duplicates.  If an author
has N commits, there will be N entries for the author in AUTHORS.
Check if an author already exists in the list before appending.
While at it, add a .mailmap (derived from libivrt's .mailmap) to
futher tidy the generated AUTHORS list.

  Add .mailmap.  I started with libvirt's .mailmap and removed
  entries where there was no corresponding author in the
  libvirt-python repo.
