[linux-lvm] preparing for impending switch to git/fedorahosted

Petr Rockai mentioned that lvm development will soon be
switching away from cvs for good (hurray!), and asked about fixing
some of the warts in the current mirrored-from-cvs git repository.

Now is indeed the best (and only) time to fix any problem you know
about in the repository.

There were many commits with incomplete author/committer name
and/or email address:

    $ git log --pretty=format:%an:%ae|sort -u

The snippet below fixes those listed above, as well as the
typo in Petr's email address.  Here's the resulting list of authors.
If anyone else would like a name/email change, let us know.
I notice that Zdeněk Kabeláč's name is spelled two different ways.
We can fix that, if desired, and if we know which is preferred.

Here's the "command" to make the above changes.
Anyone can run it just before they push the "initial" repository
into the empty fedorahosted git repository.

If there are other types of corrections, like improper authorship,
or typos in the commit logs, we can fix those, too.
