    I guess this is a fairly confusing issues .. I found a number of regular
    BSD licenses in the kernel , many under include/linux/ ,


    in fact most of nfsd is BSD only, at least directly in the .c files.
    There could be some statement someplace else that I missed.


    Just structures ..

    Is it possible that no code header files can be BSD only? From looking
    at the directory that is kind of what it looks like.
