To clarify... If Kent wrote the patch and you are simply acting
as gatekeeper / upstreamer you should set the mail to be from Kent
and put your own Signed-off after his to basically act as a submaintainer
certifying you believe his sign off and all that entails.

If it is a bit of a joint effort then that's fine but for copyright
purposes there should be some indication of the split.

My instinct is not really. The magic device-addr doesn't help.
You could work around it but it's not that nice and you'd have
to create the regmap mapping on the fly or carry static ones
for each value of htat.

Nope. We went around this in an earlier revision. It's an address transmitted
in the control byte to allow you to 'share' a chip select line between multiple
chips (crazy but true).

Yeah, that trickery is still little known (and I forget about it from
time to time).

The upshot for those who have missed this is you can use a magic
acpi device to instantiate based on device tree bindings :)

So we need to strip all this 'obvious' protection stuff out of drivers.
