[1] Quoting Documentation/SubmittingPatches:
"The Signed-off-by: tag indicates that the signer was involved

patch's delivery path.

If a person was not directly involved in the preparation or
handling of a patch but wishes to signify and record their
approval of it then they can arrange to have an Acked-by: line
added to the patch's changelog."
