I was making reference to the fact that COPYING tells you to provide a
link to the full notice:
"To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found."

Yes, that's fine.

You can move it to just before mfd_add_devices().
