OK so I didn't do this, I just pulled it in :-)

Yes this has been discussed in the past. But when a developer
bisects down to a certain commit and just looks at it with
git log there is no telling which subsystem this thing came from
and who actually funnelled it to Torvalds.

I do know you *can* find that out with some git magic, the problem
is that it is so magic that most developers don't know it and just
look at the signoffs.

But it's not like I care super-much.
