Following up to myself, I find that
http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#3party says:

  4. Minor modifications/additions to third-party source files should
     typically be licensed under the same terms as the rest of the rest
     of the third-party source for convenience.

Since the modifications I want to make so far are small (~5 lines
added), this sounds most appropriate.  How do I ensure that my
modifications are in fact licensed under that third-party licence?  Is
it just by committing the changes and leaving the original licence
header at the top of the file?
