There are 2 uses of SPDX.*Apache in staging.

drivers/staging/android/ashmem.h:// SPDX-License-Identifier: (GPL-2.0 OR Apache-2.0)
drivers/staging/android/uapi/ashmem.h:// SPDX-License-Identifier: (GPL-2.0 OR Apache-2.0)

I believe each specific license text should be
available in either the actual source file with
the Apache license or in a specific LICENSES/
file in the kernel tree.

Right.  That's probably best.

Sounds good to me.

I should have excluded Documentation/process/license-rules.rst
from the SPDX matches.

Are significant portions of that document generic across
multiple projects or is it entirely specific to linux?

cheers, Joe
