First great work Jon!
I wonder if a "Sponsored by" type addition that could be used in the MAINTAINERS file would make this sort of analysis in the future easier. The emails could then be matched to sponsor - maybe even defining a special "myself" sponsor for those doing the work privately. I'm sure a lot of companies would be happy for the recognition it would bring. However, as a kernel user rather than a contributor, maybe such a suggestion is culturally inappropriate.
Do you plan on making the scripts available so others can slice and dice the numbers without having to be such a got-foo expert?
Again, thanks for such interesting analysis.
Releasing the scripts

Its something I would like to see on a monthly basis and perhaps with added charting. An interested party could develop it further for you and you could still put the results on the site.
Sounds great to me.
