FW: Invalid SPDX identifier in Linux source tree

Mark Atwood (Amazon.com)

I just got this note from one of my developers.


Is he correct? Should we or someone send a patch to Linux project?

Sorry for the delay, I'm long overdue in forwarding this to you.


Contains the following invalid SPDX identifier:

/* SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note */

The SPDX list of license identifiers (https://spdx.org/licenses/) does not include GPL-2.0+ in any form.  The closest would (presumably) be GPL-2.0-or-later.
