Pentax K-3 MakerNote not recognized due to different maker tag

The MakerNote tag in Pentax K-3 raw files (maybe other recent Pentax cameras), both DNG and PEF, is not recognized by Exiv2 because the Make tag says "RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD." instead of "PENTAX Corporation". If I change the Make tag to anything that says PENTAX, the MakerNote is recognized, but this might break other metadata readers.
You may find sample raw files here:

Thanks for the patch. I have commited it to the svn trunk.
Beware that this will have to be changed if makernote support for older Ricoh cameras is added to Exiv2.
