   Marcus asked me to do this.

And that doesn't mean that it will be easy to hunt down copyright
holders to code etc.  And such changes don't help when you want to
update the file from some upstream source (in this case, Linux), since
it will just "disapper".  If you want to keep a list of people that
have worked on the patch, keep it in the ChangeLog.

I might add that the following is also a common practise among alot of
projects when one wants to note several people that have worked on a

| 2004-02-18  Person1  <foo@bar.qux>
|             Person2  <baz@bar.qux>
|       * foo.c (fun): Bar Baz.
