+ This exception is used together with one of the above SPDX-Licenses
+ to mark user space API (uapi) header files so they can be included
+ into non GPL compliant user space application code.
+ To use this exception add it with the keyword WITH to one of the
+ identifiers in the SPDX-Licenses tag:
+ SPDX-License-Identifier: <SPDX-License> WITH Linux-syscall-note
+ NOTE! This copyright does *not* cover user programs that use kernel
+ services by normal system calls - this is merely considered normal use
+ of the kernel, and does *not* fall under the heading of "derived work".
+ Also note that the GPL below is copyrighted by the Free Software
+ Foundation, but the instance of code that it refers to (the Linux
+ kernel) is copyrighted by me and others who actually wrote it.
+ Also note that the only valid version of the GPL as far as the kernel
+ is concerned is _this_ particular version of the license (ie v2, not
+ v2.2 or v3.x or whatever), unless explicitly otherwise stated.
