The only contributions to that file in OpenSSL that isn't from Andy
are a whitespace fix and the addition of the licence :-)
If that makes you feel better we could undo the whitespace fix :-)
I've checked the other PowerPC related files in there and the situation
is identical (aes-ppc.pl does have also a spelling fix in comments).
At this point, it's pretty clear that this code is authored solely by
Andy who gave permission to use it.
