Documentation: Add license-rules.rst to describe how to properly identify file licenses
Add a file to the Documentation directory to describe how file licenses should be described in all kernel files, using the SPDX identifier, as well as where all licenses should be in the kernel source tree for people to refer to (LICENSES/). Thanks to Kate and Greg for review and editing and Jonas for the suggestions concerning the meta tags in the licenses files.
