Hi Greg,

I would like to emphasize that the file COPYING has evolved
significantly since this file was added. It used to be GPL-2.0 only.

at commit 3a978e558a32b51d03809f7d72b6c68d1a46d953, the contents of
the file are included below.

yes, this file has GPLv2.0-only, but other files that reference
copying (more recently) would be GPL-2.0-only with  Linux-syscall-note

but it might be useful to verify the contents of COPYING at the time
the license is added. Although, one can argue that the
authors of the file have given tacit agreement that the contents of
the COPYING file will be the license of the file, even if the COPYING
file evolves.

NOTE! This copyright does *not* cover user programs that use kernel
 services by normal system calls - this is merely considered normal use
 of the kernel, and does *not* fall under the heading of "derived work".

 Also note that the GPL below is copyrighted by the Free Software
Foundation, but the instance of code that it refers to (the Linux
 kernel) is copyrighted by me and others who actually wrote it.
[...]

 Also note that the only valid version of the GPL as far as the kernel
 is concerned is _this_ particular version of the license (ie v2, not
 v2.2 or v3.x or whatever), unless explicitly otherwise stated.

[...]
