Also, based on the changes in this series, I fail to see how you could
even claim copyright on the entire file.  Please explain that as well
when you resend this patch.

Note, I'm not a lawyer, and this isn't legal advice, please contact your
company's lawyers, they know this type of thing, and now the normal
rules for claiming copyright of a whole file.  They also know that
copyright notices in files don't mean anything, but lawyers love to
cargo-cult things more than any other profession :)

thanks,
