It might be that the simplest way to do this is just to have someone
from Microsoft send the pull request (with a signed tag) to Linus.
There are any number ways to arrange this but the PGP-signed tag might
be sufficient. Alternatively, some kind of declaration from a
Microsoft lawyer to OIN might be sufficient. This is where asking the
LF if they can bring together a meeting of the minds of LF, OIN, and
Microsoft lawyers might make things much easier.
