SubmittingPatches says (in part):

(b) 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; or

If that's not sufficient, then the documentation needs fixing. It's also
not current practice, as far as I can tell - did ath5k have sign-offs
from the BSD people?
