[PATCH 0/1] staging: android: ion: add the GPL exception note to header

From: Hyun Kwon
Date: Wed Feb 13 2019 - 19:03:31 EST


I wonder if the exception, "WITH Linux-syscall-note", can be added to
the ion header license, to allow user source code with different
license to include it without being derivative of GPL.

More specifically, we want to use this ion header in a BSD license
module [1], without enforcing the GPL license on its users or
on the module itself when it has a copy of the header in its source

Any guide on what can be done would be appreciated.
