I am neither a lawyer nor an expert here, but I think in case the patch
itself never really passed through the hands of Andreas, it should not
include an Sob of him. An Sob is like a signature - you can/should not
put an Sob from somebody else into a file, everybody has to do that
So in case you copied code from another file, simply state that clearly
in the patch description and make sure that the original author is on
"CC:". You can also explicitly put a "Cc: Original Author <address@hidden>"
line after your Sob in the patch description to make sure that the
"Cc:" information is retained in the patch description.
