Interesting. So I'm pulling this, and I get to pull request 3/7, and
that's when I notice that the email is sent by Arnd, but the tag is
signed by Olof.

Which is fine, but I end up cutting-and-pasting the name of the "from"
person from the signature, so the pull requests got merged as

Pull ARM SoC ... from Olof Johansson:

instead or using "from Arnd Bergmann".

I guess it doesn't matter and you guys don't care, but I ended up
re-doing the pulls. Olof gets credit in the pgp signature anyway.

I wonder how many times before you guys have done this and I just
didn't notice the ambiguity of who I should credit.
