Pull SPDX update from Greg KH:
 "Here is a series of patches that add SPDX tags to different kernel
  files, based on two different things:

   - SPDX entries are added to a bunch of files that we missed a year
     ago that do not have any license information at all.

     These were either missed because the tool saw the MODULE_LICENSE()
     tag, or some EXPORT_SYMBOL tags, and got confused and thought the
     file had a real license, or the files have been added since the
     last big sweep, or they were Makefile/Kconfig files, which we
     didn't touch last time.

   - Add GPL-2.0-only or GPL-2.0-or-later tags to files where our scan
     tools can determine the license text in the file itself. Where this
     happens, the license text is removed, in order to cut down on the
     700+ different ways we have in the kernel today, in a quest to get
     rid of all of these.

  These patches have been out for review on the [email protected] mailing
  list, and while they were created by automatic tools, they were
  hand-verified by a bunch of different people, all whom names are on
  the patches are reviewers.

  The reason for these "large" patches is if we were to continue to
  progress at the current rate of change in the kernel, adding license
  tags to individual files in different subsystems, we would be finished
  in about 10 years at the earliest.

  There will be more series of these types of patches coming over the
  next few weeks as the tools and reviewers crunch through the more
  "odd" variants of how to say "GPLv2" that developers have come up with
  over the years, combined with other fun oddities (GPL + a BSD
  disclaimer?) that are being unearthed, with the goal for the whole
  kernel to be cleaned up.

  These diffstats are not small, 3840 files are touched, over 10k lines
  removed in just 24 patches"
