The sign-off chain should basically stretch from the author to the
committer - so a good sign-off chain is one where the first sign-off
matches the author of the commit, and the last sign-off matches the
committer, and the ones in the middle are obviously the path it took
from one to the other.

However, Tao has *NOT* added sign-offs to the patches he's taken. I
didn't look at all of them, but the first few commits are all authored
(and signed off on - so far so good) by Mark Fasheh, but there is no
sign-off for Tao. So the sign-off chain is clearly not complete.
