Linux as a whole is GPLv2 only, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that
parts of it cannot be dual licensed (or GPLv2+).  It’s safer to leave
copyright noticed clear unless you explicitly want your contribution be
GPLv2 only which brings the whole file GPLv2 only.

Column alignment of field names or RHS of assignment operators is quite
inconsistent already within drivers/usb/gadget/ which is why I’m
concerned whether this is really helping.

Anyway, I actually don’t care much, just adding my two rappen.
