It's not at all clear to me to which file this license is supposed to
apply.  Also, are you absolutely sure that this is GPL compatible??


In any case, please squash this patch with the other parts of this
series.  It's a bad idea to knowingly add incorrect stuff and fix it
only later.

Best regards,

Ok.  After reading the explanations
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#clearbsd
I hereby reject this code.

I'm not willing to accept even the theoretical risk that Analog
Devices might fancy to sue any party involved with U-Boot development
or use for patent infringement.  [The fact that you bother to chose
this specific lincense form suggests that such a thread might exist.]

Sorry.


Best regards,

Given the lurking patent issues with this license I'm not going
to accept this.

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
