The meaning of Signed-off-by is defined in the DOC, as seen in
Documentation/submitting-patches.rst. In this case, the better approach
would have been to credit Cao Jin in the changelog, since he didn't write

For a little documentation tweak like this it's not that big a deal,
though, so I simply gone ahead and applied it.
