Such contributions can be credited in the changelog, and/or copyright
notices, and/or the code itself. The signoff chain on the other hand is
strictly defined as a 'route the patch took', with a single point of
origin, the main author. See Documentation/SubmittingPatches, pt 12.

[ A signoff chain _can_ signal multi-authored code where the code got
written by someone and then further fixed/developed by someone else -
who adds a SOB to the end - but in that case I expect to get the patch
from the last person in the signoff chain. ]
