Note that there's a couple of other Xilinx files in the upstream
kernel tree already that could serve as a template:

drivers/char/xilinx_hwicap/buffer_icap.c: * XILINX IS PROVIDING THIS DESIGN, CODE, OR INFORMATION "AS IS"
drivers/char/xilinx_hwicap/buffer_icap.h: * XILINX IS PROVIDING THIS DESIGN, CODE, OR INFORMATION "AS IS"
drivers/char/xilinx_hwicap/fifo_icap.c: * XILINX IS PROVIDING THIS DESIGN, CODE, OR INFORMATION "AS IS"
drivers/char/xilinx_hwicap/fifo_icap.h: * XILINX IS PROVIDING THIS DESIGN, CODE, OR INFORMATION "AS IS"
drivers/char/xilinx_hwicap/xilinx_hwicap.c: * XILINX IS PROVIDING THIS DESIGN, CODE, OR INFORMATION "AS IS"
drivers/char/xilinx_hwicap/xilinx_hwicap.h: * XILINX IS PROVIDING THIS DESIGN, CODE, OR INFORMATION "AS IS"

Those files carry this as-is no-warrantes notice plus also a GPLv2
notice:
