If he gave the actual code then he should be the credited author
git commit --amend --author=...

If it was just a suggestion, then an informal tag such as 
Suggested-by is usually used.

Signed-off-by has formal legal meaning to do with the developer
certificate of origin, it's not valid as a way of crediting someone
with a contribution to the patch.

Now this is interesting as a follow up to the previous and may actually
answer the question I raised.  Let's see what Mark and Rob come
back with. If possible I'd like us to resolve this once and for all
with a thread to point people back to!
