It could mean either one, actually.

We have only a small number of attributions that change-log-mode
highlights: "Reported by", "Suggested by", and "Patches by" (each one
with a couple of variants).  So "Suggested by" will have to serve both
when someone just describes an idea and when they submit code from
which only the main ideas are taken.

If someone wants to know what exactly was "suggested", they need to
read the relevant discussions.  In this case, the log message
references a bug number, and there one can see the actual submission.
