I still can't see why this isn't right. We submitted the patchset. It is not
that big and still it isn't just two lines. As I've seen all over the kernel, It is
a common practice to have multiple copyrights in kernel files. We are not claiming
the copyright to the whole file, but to the contribution only. I got a consent to
contribute when I was employed by the company. What's wrong with that? Shall I
send the patchset from my corporate e-mail then?
