If you fold other peoples patches into something please preserve the
authorship data and preferably keep the two patches separated as it
otherwise causes merge problems if stuff (eg the serial patches) goes via
two trees at once.

At the moment the ttydev tree has
-> your original -> my (intel's I guess) fixes ->

and if the updated one also went in via the arm tree git can't always
figure out what is going on.

If its only going by one path and you know that then just adding an
additional note on the authorship of updates is fine but this being
serial/tty and ARM is likely to hit both trees.
