     MAINTAINERS: update entry for ARM/berlin
     Synaptics has acquired the Multimedia Solutions Business of Marvell[1].
     So change the berlin entry name and move it to its alphabetical
     location. We move to ARM/Synaptics instead of ARM/Marvell.
     This patch also updates my email address from marvell to synaptics.
