SOB's are just meant to testify that the code is GPL. It has nothing to do 
with authorship.

On all cases I'm aware, when some code from your tree were merged 
upstream, your authorship were marked inside the patch's description. 
Also, your authorship are explicit at the em28xx files you've contributed.
