Code of Conduct: Let's revamp it.

The Code of Conflict is not achieving its implicit goal of fostering
civility and the spirit of 'be excellent to each other'.  Explicit
guidelines have demonstrated success in other projects and other areas

on the Contributor Covenant as described at

From this point forward, we should abide by these rules in order to help
make the kernel community a welcoming environment to participate in.
