SubjectRe: [PATCHv4 1/1] thermal: intel Quark SoC X1000 DTS thermal driver
From
Date
There might be a mismatch between the license stated in the comment at
the top of the (only) source file of this driver and the license ident
used in the MODULE_LICENSE() macro.

choice". But if that's what you want, shouldn't the BSD license be
copied in that comment too? (Please note that this is not a rhetorical
question.)
