You've got to take MODULE_LICENSE() into account. There is

MODULE_LICENSE("GPL");
MODULE_LICENSE("GPL v2");
MODULE_LICENSE("GPL and additional rights");
MODULE_LICENSE("Dual BSD/GPL");
MODULE_LICENSE("Dual MIT/GPL");
MODULE_LICENSE("Dual MPL/GPL");

I think it's time to set things right, making

* MODULE_LICENSE the authoritative place for the license
(also makes it easier to grep for)

* sync up license into MODULE_LICENSE
