I usually add my initials with a small note for anything non-trivial
like: https://github.com/nathanchance/continuous-integration/blob/sandbox/patches/4.4/arm64/0015-kbuild-fix-linker-feature-test-macros-when-cross-com.patch

I meant to post this on GitHub earlier but was wiped out from work. I
did a successful backport for arm64 on top of 4.4.163 a couple of days
ago that is based on the work Matthias did with some of the newer fixes
that have cropped up. Hopefully it is of some use :)
