ok, thanks for the background, but still, squashing doesn't mean changing
authorship and Christian has probably also warned you beforehand :-)
"(Note: In some of the patches the "Author" in the commits is dissent1! So
watch out before sending them off)"

>From the kernel docs:
"The contribution is based upon previous work that, to the best of my
knowledge, is covered under an appropriate open source license and I have the
right under that license to submit that work with modifications, whether
created in whole or in part by me, under the same open source license (unless
I am permitted to submit under a different license), as indicated in the file;"
so in short, kernel is covered by GPLv2 which allows you to do this if you
retain the authorship.
