I just change the "2.1" to "2" in your patch, because the orignal code
is LGPL v2.1, LGPL v2.1 permits us to apply the terms of the ordinary
GNU General Public License instead of it.

This is the clause of LGPL v2.1:
3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library. To do
this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
instead of to this License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the
ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
that version instead if you wish.) Do not make any other change in these
notices.

Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for that copy,
so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all subsequent copies
and derivative works made from that copy.

This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of the Library
into a program that is not a library.

The following is the URL of LGPL v2.1:
   http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/lgpl-2.1.html

Thanks
Miao
