meta-intel: Clarify and relocate patch submission guidelines
The current location for patch submission guidelines, MAINTAINERS, doesn't make as much sense for that information as does README, so move the relevant information there. The existing patch submission guidelines also aren't as clear and exhaustive as they could be; this change additionally adds more detailed expectations for patch submission. Both files also get a bit of reorganization and a bit more explicit text describing their purpose. Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <email@example.com>

This file contains a list of BSP maintainers for the BSPs contained in
the meta-intel repository.
-Please submit any patches against meta-intel BSPs to the meta-intel
-mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, if your patches are
-available via a public git repository, please also include a URL to
-the repo and branch containing your patches as that makes it easier
-for maintainers to grab and test your patches.
-If you have problems with or questions about a particular BSP, feel
-free to contact the maintainer directly (cc:ing the Yocto mailing list
-puts it in the archive and helps other people who might have the same
-questions in the future), but please try to do the following first:
- - look in the Yocto Project Bugzilla
- (http://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/) to see if a problem has
- already been reported
- - look through recent entries of the meta-intel
- (https://lists.yoctoproject.org/pipermail/meta-intel/) and Yocto
- (https://lists.yoctoproject.org/pipermail/yocto/) mailing list
- archives to see if other people have run into similar problems or
- had similar questions answered.
+The purpose of this file is to provide contact information for
+specific BSPs and other code contained within meta-intel. You should
+address questions and patches for a particular BSP or other code to
+the appropriate maintainer listed in this file, cc'ing the meta-intel
+mailing list. This ensures that your question or patch will be
+addressed by the appropriate person, and that it will be seen by other
+users who may be facing similar problems or questions.
+Please see the top-level README file for guidelines relating to the
+details of submitting patches, reporting problems, or asking questions
+about any of the BSPs or other recipes contained within meta-intel.
