I asked Yutaka Niibe and he knows him back from Hitachi and he said, he
still has a channel to contact him. He promised to try to reach out to
him and ask for the copyright assignment.

Yutaka was involved hiring all the developers for Hitachi/Renesas back
then when they started porting Linux to the architecture, that's why
he knows most of the people involved. He also got me in touch with
Renesas in Tokyo who sent me the last SH-7724 Evoboard they had in
stock ;).

As for the copyright assignment, Yutaka told me that as far as he
remembers, assigning copyrights to an external entity wasn't possible
back then which is why it didn't happen in this case. But since Hitachi
is no longer involved, it will hopefully no problem for Yoshii-san
to do the copyright assignment.
