So basically just

  """
  Contributed-under: TianoCore Contribution Agreement 1.1
  Signed-off-by: Michael D Kinney <michael.d.kin...@intel.com>
  """

implies Mike saying, "trust me guys, I got Microsoft's authorization (or
whoever the original authors were) to contribute their code under the
2-clause BSDL". Is that right?

Dunno why but this concept is hard for me to accept. :) "whoever the
original authors were" is super vague to me. Let's say I want to verify
that authorization myself: whom do I contact? Are the
"https://github.com/Microsoft/MS_UEFI/..."; references considered
sufficient origin information?

Thanks,
Laszlo
