New License Request: Valgrind Client License

Stefan Brüns <stefan.bruens@...>
 

Valgrind (http://valgrind.org) is mostly licensed under GPL-2.0-or later, but
includes several permissively licensed header files for inclusion in arbitrary
client programs.

Proposed Full Name: Valgrind BSD-Style Client Header License
Short Identifier: Valgrind-BSD-Client-Header

The license is included in the following files:
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=valgrind.git;a=blob;f=include/valgrind.h
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=valgrind.git;a=blob;f=callgrind/callgrind.h
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=valgrind.git;a=blob;f=drd/drd.h
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=valgrind.git;a=blob;f=hellgrind/hellgrind.h
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=valgrind.git;a=blob;f=memcheck/memcheck.h

The actual license clauses are identical for all 5 files.

Full Text (valgrind.h):
----------------------------------------------------------------

Notice that the following BSD-style license applies to this one
file (valgrind.h) only. The rest of Valgrind is licensed under the
terms of the GNU General Public License, version 2, unless
otherwise indicated. See the COPYING file in the source
distribution for details.
