I think it makes sense to try approaching Ryan Lim about this.  Point
him at and at this posting, and
try to get him to publish his code with a proper statement - or at least
to make a public statement as it relates to his code (he'd need to be
specific).  Failing that, you could look at just how much of Ryan's code
you have left in the patch - maybe whatever you might have left is too
minor to be subject to copyright.
