The fixed only rule is to add name and obfuscated email address of the
patch author to commit messages.
Copyright notices in the files are usually only added for new files and
when a huge portion of a files is changed/added.

If you are fine with it (as I understand it you are) the same without
copyright chunks (it's the first patch chunk for each file I think).
But I think you can wait with resending until someone comments on the
actual code (I think I'm not really qualified for that).
