These comments are not part of the source. The source has its own comments.
They are helpful when you try to track the changes, but GPL doesn't require
releasing the tracking record of a GPL project. It only requires releasing
whole source (or diff).

The argument that "BK hosts GPL project so BK has to be GPL'd" is also
ridiculous. If so, let's GPL all disks that store any bit of GPL code,
firmware and hardware/chip specs. Then where would we end up? Right,
you cannot find anywhere to host any GPL projects. So it's essentially
killing GPL in the name of purifying and defending it.
