Which changes are you referring to? Do you have a pointer
into the archives? Or are you referring to kms_branch in git?

You can just try. Send a small set of style patches first, with a
note that more things are coming, and see if they get accepted.

If James posted the patches with his signed-off line, they are GPL'ed
and there is no problem with copyright. If you just make small changes
in the ordering, you can keep his Signed-off-by line and add your own.
If you make significant changes, you can put "Patch originally by James
Simmons" and put only your own Signed-off-by line.
