Great, I'll gladly send you a patchset to do this, what tree do you want
me to base it against?

Note, all this original patchset did was hit the 11k files in the tree
with no license text in it at all.  That required a tree-wide change to
resolve everything at once.  Unification of the way we describe licenses
in individual files will go on a subsystem-by-subsystem basis.
