I think we should never include the original SOB if there was _any_
change. SOB is not credits, it's a signature. If someone takes my patch
and changes it, I want my SOB line removed unless I re-sign the modified
patch.

We may invent some other Based-on-patch-by: etc. tag if really
necessary, but the signature is a different thing.
