[UV5R] RT-5R and RT-5RV: Remove "-" from Model Name

This patch removed the "-" from the radio's model name.

RT-5R > RT5R

This will break older versions of chirp when they try to open images saved
from newer ones for no real reason, but backwards compatibility going forward
is preserved, which is the important thing.

Add vendor/model compatibility mapping to directory

This allows us to change radio model identification over time in the
rare circumstances where it is appropriate or necessary.
