Bug#1068324: lintian: patch-not-forwarded-upstream for upstream patches

Hi Nilesh,

this is not entirely correct.

The full patch header is:

Description: fix typeset -p confusion between empty and unset
Origin: commit:10065BC69BE555D6721

Description is the standard name for Subject (the same way
Author is the standard DEP 3 name for From), and it’s present,
and when Origin indicates an upstream commit (as shown here),
Author does not need to be present, per DEP 3.

If Harry Potter gets a splitting headache in his scar
when he’s near Tom Riddle (aka Voldemort),
does Tom get pain in the arse when Harry is near him?
	-- me, wondering why it’s not Jerry Potter………
