If that situation does occur, our only recourse to revert the merge of
the potentially infringing code until such time as the situation is
resolved (if the contributor disclaims it, it can go back in... if not,
it has to stay out).

In this particular case it appears that BJ did write this patch on his
own with information derived from yours, but realistically the code
could not have been changed in any other way, so there is no licensing
concern here.
