Just a nit: a license mismatch.

This states the license is GPL v2 or later. (The other files used for
this module contain an identical comment.)


And, according to include/linux/module.h, this states the license is
just GPL v2. So I think that either the license used in the comment at
the top of those files or the ident used in the MODULE_LICENSE() macro
needs to change.

Ditto for the thunder_bgx.ko and the nicvf.ko module.
