In fact, in these cases I will normally copy the full name from
Signed-off-by to the From line before applying the patch. (In general
the signed-off-by line and the From line should have the same contents.)

P.S. Helpful tip: if you use emacs, try putting something like this
in your .emacs.el file:

(defun insert-signed-off-by ()
(insert "Signed-off-by: Fabrice Jouhaud" <yargil@xxxxxxx>\n"))

(global-set-key "\^Cs" 'insert-signed-off-by)
