It's not clear to me that Peter forgot it.
Someone else brought this up -- it seems to me that
Documentation/SubmittingPatches is a little too strong about needing
permission to use Reported-by:

If this patch fixes a problem reported by somebody else, consider adding a
Reported-by: tag to credit the reporter for their contribution. Please
note that this tag should not be added without the reporter's permission,
especially if the problem was not reported in a public forum. That said,
if we diligently credit our bug reporters, they will, hopefully, be
inspired to help us again in the future.

Sure, if a problem was reported privately, then we need to have permission
to use Reported-by, but if it was reported in a public forum, that should be
implicit permission (IMHO).
