I actually did the work here, it was derived heavily from binfmt_elf
and binfmt_aout; had it not been GPL-licensed, it would not have been
distributable. Also, I believe I did this work before joining Linuxcare,
so I don't believe HP has any claim to it at all. You'd have to check
CVS history to be sure. Oh, and even if HP does have a claim to it
through Linuxcare, HP's contract required all changes made by Linuxcare
to be contributed upstream. So three different reasons why this code
being GPL is required.
