Subject[PATCH] kernel: replace FSF address with web source in license notices
Date
A few years ago the FSF moved and "59 Temple Place" is wrong. Having this
still in our source files feels old and unmaintained.

As https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html suggests, we replace the
postal address with "<http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>".

Signed-off-by: Martin Kepplinger <martink@posteo.de>

This is an attempt to sneak this in in one go for the kernel directory.
I think it's important to take the license statement serious and to not
confuse users.

If this should go in as seperate patches, each to their lists, please
say so.

thanks

martin
