You can't sign off on it.  It's not your patch.  The original author
needs to do so.  See the text of the Developer's Certificate of Origin
1.1, in Documentation/SubmittingPatches.

I really don't think adding this patch is going to do anyone any good
when the entire arch/ppc subdirectory is going to be deleted in a week
or two.

That specific code doesn't exist.
