This mail still has your From: because I guess you pasted the patch in
the mail.

But, if you look at what I wrote here:

https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20200107195606.GM29542@zn.tnic

you'll see the

From: Lei Wang <leiwang_git@outlook.com>

which is the last From: in the mail and that is taken by git as the
author of the patch.

However, if I apply this mail of yours, it will make you the
author. Because in git there can be only one author per patch
and other authors can be additionally accredited with the
Co-developed-by: tag from the same doc I was pointing at before:
Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst

Looking at this driver, however, you have supplied three authors. And I
think you guys need to discuss it amongst yourselves who is going to be
the author of this driver in the git history.

If there are more questions, I'm pretty sure Sasha would be glad to
explain to you how the whole authorship thing works and what the
implications are.

Thx.
