2019-05-03LICENSES: Rename other to deprecatedChristoph Hellwig-0/+0
Make it clear in the directory name that these are not intended for new code. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Reviewed-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>
2019-05-03LICENSES: Clearly mark dual license only licensesChristoph Hellwig-2/+10
Just like the CDDL the Apache license and the MPL must only be used as a choice in additional to an GPL2 compatible license. Copy over the boilerplate from the CDDL file to the other two after fixing it up to make it clear the licenses need to be GPL2 compatible, not just the more generic GPL compatible. For example the Apache 2 license is GPL3 compatible, but that doesn't matter for the kernel. Also move these licenses to a separate directory and document the rules in license-rules.rst.

2019-01-16LICENSES: Add GCC runtime library exception textThomas Gleixner-0/+18
A recent commit added SPDX identifiers to the SuperH low level library code which originates from GCC. This code is licensed under the GPL 2.0 or later with the GCC runtime library exception. Unfortunately the authors did not bother to add the exception text to the LICENSES directory so spdxcheck fails with: arch/sh/lib/ashiftrt.S: 1:42 Invalid Exception ID: GCC-exception-2.0 arch/sh/lib/ashlsi3.S: 1:42 Invalid Exception ID: GCC-exception-2.0 arch/sh/lib/ashrsi3.S: 1:42 Invalid Exception ID: GCC-exception-2.0 arch/sh/lib/lshrsi3.S: 1:42 Invalid Exception ID: GCC-exception-2.0 arch/sh/lib/movmem.S: 1:42 Invalid Exception ID: GCC-exception-2.0 arch/sh/lib/udiv_qrnnd.S: 1:42 Invalid Exception ID: GCC-exception-2.0 arch/sh/lib/udivsi3.S: 1:42 Invalid Exception ID: GCC-exception-2.0 arch/sh/lib/udivsi3_i4i-Os.S: 1:42 Invalid Exception ID: GCC-exception-2.0 arch/sh/lib/udivsi3_i4i.S: 1:42 Invalid Exception ID: GCC-exception-2.0 Add the exception text along with the required tags which allow automated checking.

2018-10-18LICENSES: Remove CC-BY-SA-4.0 license textChristoph Hellwig-397/+0
Using non-GPL licenses for our documentation is rather problematic, as it can directly include other files, which generally are GPLv2 licensed and thus not compatible. Remove this license now that the only user (idr.rst) is gone to avoid people semi-accidentally using it again.

2018-01-06LICENSES: Add the GPL 2.0 licenseThomas Gleixner-0/+353
Add the full text of the GPL 2.0 license to the LICENSES directory. It was copied directly from the COPYING file in the kernel source tree as it differs from the public available version of the license in various places including the FSF. Philippe did some research on the GPL2.0 history: There is NO trustworthy version of an official GPL 2.0 text: the FSF official texts are all fubar (if only in small and subtle ways). The FSF texts should be authoritative, but then which one? They published more GPL 2.0 versions than most. So we would be hard pressed to blame SPDX or the OSI for having their own minor variant. Then in digging further, I found the ONE true original GPL with a file time stamp on June 2 1991, 01:50 (AM?, PM? unknown time zone?) ! in an old GCC archive. For the posterity and everyone's enjoyment I have built a git history of GPL 2.0 Mark1 to Mark6 See https://github.com/pombredanne/gpl-history/commits/master/COPYING I also added a shorter history of the Linux COPYING text. The first version in Linus's git tree is based on the very fine and well tuned GPL 2 Mark4, the first fully Y2K compliant version of the GPL 2, as you can see from the diffs with the former Mark3: that was dangerously stuck in the last century. The current version in is based on a rare GPL 2.0 Mark5.1 aka "Franklin St", that I do not have in my history yet and spells "Franklin St." rather than "Franklin Street." Therefore there is likely another GPL 2.0 version between Mark4 and Mark5 that I have yet to find and may not have been caught by the archive.org spiders. Here help and patches welcomed: this is likely an important missing link.
