So does the patch.
What I had to change was that the Signed-off-by: lines indicated
that this patch came in like this:

Robin -> Mike -> Bryan Wu -> Sam
So I rearranged the signed-off-by: lines so it indicated
the following order:

Robin -> Bryan Wu -> Mike -> Sam


I trust that Bryan really did add his sob, and it
was only a mistake that Mike added his sob before
that of Bryans.
