What libxfs patch? And what "kernel one" are you referring to here?

What file exactly?

And from what I know, there is nothing that is "non-copyrightable".

And this isn't changing the copyright of _ANYTHING_ it is just putting
the explicit license of the file, on each file in the kernel, because it
needs to be tracked.

Nothing was changed, the license should be the exact same as it was
before. But as I don't know what file you are referring to here, it's a
bit hard to determine what you are talking about exactly :(
