I'm hardly an expert but almost all occurences of "Linux-syscall-note"
are in UAPI headers so you are most likely right. IIRC I copied the line
into include/uapi/linux/ethtool_netlink.h (which was the first new file)
from neighbor ethtool.h and then used the same in all other files.

I'll send a v3 with "GPL-2.0-only" (as there also seems to be a trend of
moving to SPDX v3 identifiers) in a moment.
