I've recently been trying to upstream part of the Nintendo Switch-on-Linux patchset, but it appears that the original developer must sign off on each commit.

Do I need to ask the original developers to add this? Should I add the line myself if I am submitting it?

Also, if I have to clean up/merge commits (e.g. if the originals modify semantically different files), then how should I have the original developers sign off on those?
