So remove that first line from this paragraph

* This file is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public
* License version 2. This program is licensed "as is" without any
* warranty of any kind, whether express or implied.

reducing it to:

* This program is licensed "as is" without any warranty of any kind,
* whether express or implied.

Is that what you are proposing ?

The GPL does state that there is no warranty but using a different
wording that may not be legally equivalent.

thx!
