Yes, but for that we need to have the SPDX-Identifiers in place and the
whole licensing mess of the kernel cleaned up. We're working on that, but
that's a herculanean task.

Btw, this was the third thing on that day which made me curse a certain
Rusty dude. Guess what the other presents were which that guy
left.... hotplug and futexes.

Somehow that all that stuff sticks to me now and because that dude left
into buzzword land I can't make him fix it anymore :)

Thanks,
