Parent article: Who wrote 2.6.32

It's taken from the "author" credit in git. Subsystem maintainers generally take pain to get that right, so it's a pretty reliable metric. I only know of a couple of significant exceptions; one was in the early days of the staging tree, and the article at that time explained the issue. I did also make a correction for one misattribution in the 2.6.32 series.
