yesterday I have written to the author of the patch, this morning I have
received an answer...
in short, the author (Ralf Treinen <treinen@debian.org>)
says that:
(quoting his words) "You may use, modify, redistribute with or without modifications in any
way you wish."

and that it's not necessary to put information about the copyright of
the patch in debian/copyright...
