I'd argue that part (b) only applies if the s-o-b line is present in the 
original, otherwise I'm not sure how it's clear the author intended to 
publish their source under the license in question. That's why I've 
always beedn careful to go back and ask the original author to give 
their s-o-b, like you did. Some commits at least in the earlier Pi 
Foundation kernels also clearly had incorrect git author values, or were 
squashed together forms of multiple peoples' work:-(

Luckily it's a moot point since Phil gave his s-o-b.

Does a similar bug exist in any other pinctrl drivers?
