Subject[PATCH] Fix some MODULE_LICENSE tags in 2.4.19-rc3
Currently two files in the kernel have MODULE_LICENSE tags which result in a 
tainted kernel. According to include/linux/module.h, BSD licensed code
becomes also GPL when linked into the kernel.
Offending files: fs/nls/nls_cp1250.c and net/ipv4/netfilter/ipchains_core.c

Comments/Suggestions welcome.

Regards,
Carl-Daniel
