It used to be that people would keep a changelog at the top of kernel files to record who has copyrights. Now that Linus uses bitkeeper, these changelogs are frowned on because the data is stored in the revision logs.
This new method is better than the old manual way of adding copyrights and it's more explicit than relying on bk log files. It's easy too.
