Seems at least inside TI, we do have a copyright template that has
been aligned on:
 * Function of the file
 * Copyright (C) 2012 Texas Instruments Incorporated - http://www.ti.com/
 *      Nishanth Menon

As long as GPL V2 is maintained, I dont see any issues. Adding
historic stuff is nice to have, I usually maintain that esp when
taking code from tarballs to just be sure to provide appropriate
