Documentation: riscv: add patch acceptance guidelines
Formalize, in kernel documentation, the patch acceptance policy for arch/riscv. In summary, it states that as maintainers, we plan to only accept patches for new modules or extensions that have been frozen or ratified by the RISC-V Foundation. We've been following these guidelines for the past few months. In the meantime, we've received quite a bit of feedback that it would be helpful to have these guidelines formally documented. Based on a suggestion from Matthew Wilcox, we also add a link to this file to Documentation/process/index.rst, to make this document easier to find. The format of this document has also been changed to align to the format outlined in the maintainer entry profiles, in accordance with comments from Jon Corbet and Dan Williams.
