[Intel-gfx] [PATCH] MAINTAINERS: Add "B:" preferred bug reporting method

Different subsystems and drivers have different preferred ways of
receiving bug reports; mailing list or bugzillas at various
locations. Add "B:" entry for specifying the preference to guide bug
reporters at the right location.

While at it, document the freedesktop.org bugzilla as the preferred
location for drm/i915 bug reports. We have more reassignment of bugs
between the kernel and userspace components than with other kernel
components, and we've thus consolidated our bug tracking there.
