Re: [PATCH] USB: add SPDX identifiers to all files in drivers/usb/

Hi,

great to see this direction of development.
This will are least clarify all the files which carry nothing expect the Marko
MODUL_LICENSE("GPL");
Because one of the interesting questions is "is this a legally binding expression of licensing?"

Ciao
Oliver

FYI:
In case you missed it: SPDX identifiers have landed in kernel land...
Read the whole thread at https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10016189/
And as a side effect, some new patches elsewhere are coming in with SPDX identifiers right in!

It's good to have SPDX identifiers in all files to make it easier to audit the kernel tree for correct licenses. This patch adds these identifiers to all files in drivers/usb/ based on a script and data from Thomas Gleixner, Philippe Ombredanne, and Kate Stewart.

Unless someone really complains, I'm going to add this to my tree for 4.15-rc1.
