The original versions of the patches do have the proper authorship
information, it's just that quilt strips it off when generating emails
like this.

When applying them to the git tree, everything comes out properly and
they get the correct authorship information. And the git tools know to
properly create the emails with the right From: lines, maybe I should
play around with quilt to add that to it too...
