Well, that is all the Signed-off-by line is good for. To indicate that
you did not steal the code from somewhere else and to certify that you
agree with licensing the code under the terms of the project's license.
It is only there for legal reasons. And most projects actually do not
apply patches if there is no such line because it seems a bit suspicious
if the submitter refuses to sign-off... :)
