According to Devicetree maintainers (see Link: below), the Devicetree
binding documents are preferrably licensed (GPL-2.0-only OR
BSD-2-Clause).

Let's check that. The actual check is a bit more relaxed, to allow more
liberal but compatible licensing (e.g. GPL-2.0-or-later OR
BSD-2-Clause).

I think not unless the existing licenses already
there are changed first.  Only about 1/3 are
dual licensed BSD.

Do all the existing license holders agree?

There would be way too many false positives given
the current licensing types in existing files.

Also, the link seems to show just a desire for an
OR BSD for this file not a desire for a treewide
change.

But:

Documentation/devicetree/bindings/submitting-patches.txt does show:

 3) DT binding files should be dual licensed. The preferred license tag is
     (GPL-2.0-only OR BSD-2-Clause).

So perhaps use code like:

				my $msg_level = \&WARN;
				$msg_level = \&CHK if ($file);
				if (&{$msg_level}("SPDX_LICENSE_TAG",
						  "The preferred bindings license is '(GPL-2.0-only OR BSD-2-Clause)'\n" . $herecurr)

so that when checkpatch is run over existing files,
this message is not emitted unless using --strict.

Maybe something like:
