The "From:" field should point to a submitter's address that is actually active,
so that (s)he can handle problem reports *sent* *to* *that* address.  I'm not
going to apply anything with a bouncing "From:".

The s-o-b is more of a gray area, but again it is supposed to be possible
to verify which it won't be if it bounces.

Also note that this is not Tomasz who is submitting this patch today, but Ulf
who doesn't even work for Samsung as far as I know.

So I'd suggest using "Tomasz Figa <tomasz.figa at gmail.com>" as a "From:", remove
his s-o-b entirely (and using the Ulf's one only) and add something like that
to the changelog:

"This patch was originally submitted by Tomasz Figa when he was employed
 by Samsung.

 Link: <URL-of-the-original-submission>"

This way Samsung will get the recognition and there won't be bouncing addresses
in tags etc.
