I know I never take patches without any changelog text :(

That is the incorrect license of this file!

NEVER add or modify a SPDX line if you do not really really really know
what you are doing.  Putting the wrong license tag on a file is worse
than not having any tag at all.

BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT THESE THINGS, they matter.  If you get them wrong,
lawyers get very grumpy :)
