Strange that you cannot use the author's mail as the signoff mail.

Try adding:

> From: Liu Chang <liuchang at cmss.chinamobile.com>

to the start of your commit message (omit the '> ').

You can test it yourself by applying your patch and looking at the
'Author:' field.

If that doesn't work, I think it's still probably okay to accept.
