Subject[PATCH] checkpatch.pl: Don't complain about nominal authors if there isn't one
checkpatch.pl shouldn't warn about a "Missing Signed-off-by: line by
nominal patch author" if there is no nominal patch author. Without
this change, checkpatch always gives me the following warning:

WARNING: Missing Signed-off-by: line by nominal patch author ''

Signed-off-by: Alan Stern <stern@rowland.harvard.edu>
