The standard way to credit this original author is:

- if the patch is unchanged just keep her as the From: and
- if you add small changes add your Signed-off-by to hers, and
a note like [bob: fix foobarbaz] before it.
- if you substantially rewrite a patch add it as From and
Signed-off-by you, but add a note to the patch text that mentions
the original work it is based on.
