    Currently if I submit a patch that was sent to me with a
    Signed-off-by line I just add mine underneath it and send.
    If the patch didn't come with a Signed-off-by then I put the
    original author in a "From" line at the top of the submission.
    Looks like I should always add a "From" line.
