BTW you may want to check if the current wording is correct:

It's not ok to submit under e.g. GPL v3 only, I'd suggest "under GPL v2
and optionally other licence(s)" or something like that.

For example code under BSD-style licence (in addition to GPLv2) is
present in Linux, though I think any additional licence (the "later" as
in "GPL v2 or later", GPL v3, MS EULA etc.) is acceptable as long as it
is really additional, i.e., if one can ignore it and "use" GPLv2

IANAL of course.
