I'm not concerned with how it's split or attributed as long as the FSF
is fine with it. I just wanted to avoid misrepresenting parts that I
did not actually write when describing my changes for copyright
assignment. But this does solve my confusion about why I thought the
patch was trivial -- my original version was hardly anything but some
//'s and #if 0's.

Assuming you already have the proper assignment on file, does it
suffice for me to just mention that parts of the patch are your work?
