So the question is, do I just jam together all the known licenses into
a string, ie.
License: BSD and GPLv2 and [etc]
or do we use the main license (GPLv2), or something else?
There are a lot of files without per-file licensing in that mix. I'm not
overly concerned about it though, since there seems to be a clear
lineage from the Linux kernel, libc, and libgcc.
I think listing all the licenses in play might make sense here, although
since GPLv2 is in play (and not just GPLv2+), that will almost certainly
end up being the strictest license, so it could just simplify down to GPLv2.
Either way works for me.
