Should I push my change as a totally new fix (and amend the author to get rid of the original author)?

I think you have no other choice than to use your own email address as the author (you could use "Stefan Weiss + Freddy Boucher" as the author "name" though; note that the committer will likely be rewritten eventually, so that's also the only way to get credits for your work).
But please keep the same Change-Id.

(and it looks like you pushed a new review, with a new Change-Id, while I was writing this; maybe you could re-push with the old Change-Id, to update the original review, and then abandon the one you just created?)
