Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst says (IMO) that these
patches should also have Signed-of-by: <you>.

"The Signed-off-by: tag indicates that the signer was involved in the
development of the patch, or that he/she was in the patch's delivery path."

Also, the sysrq key usage should be documented in
Documentation/admin-guide/sysrq.rst.
