SubjectRe: WTF? Re: [PATCH] License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license

Well if Christoph owns the copyright (if there is one) and he has stated
he believes it is too trivial to copyright then it needs an SPDX tag that
indicates the rightsholder has stated it's too trivial to copyright and
(by estoppel) revoked any right they might have to pursue a claim.

I'm sure there's a correct SPDX tag for that ;-)
