I never signed off on that patch! Speaking from memory, I just sent a
message stating that "something like this" might silence the warning. I
also stated that I needed to have another look at it.

This touches code I did not write and do not yet understand well enough.
Getting there requires a clean schedule, clean head, and/or a clean
desk. I certainly won't sign off on it until one or more of those
conditions are met.

Please don't do this (adding a Signed-off-by on a patch I drafted)
